New Vaccine May Offer Protection From Deadly Nipah Virus
Date:8/8/2012

fessor in the department of microbiology at Boston University School of Medicine, said in a news release. Bossart developed the vaccine while at Uniformed Services University.

"This work now provides key evidence that a simple and safe recombinant vaccine against Nipah virus is possible," study co-author Thomas Geisbert, professor in the department of microbiology and immunology at the University of Texas Medical Branch and the Galveston National Laboratory, said in the news release. "Demonstrating this in a nonhuman primate model is a major step forward in developing it for future therapeutic use in people."

The findings were published online Aug. 8 in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Although the vaccine was successful in animal studies, results may be different in humans.
