Programmable RNA vaccines could work against Ebola and influenza

Programmable RNA vaccines could work against Ebola and influenza
MIT engineers have developed a type of easily customisable vaccine that can be manufactured in one week, allowing it to be rapidly deployed in response to disease outbreaks. So far, they have designed vaccines against Ebola, H1N1 influenza, and Toxoplasma gondii (a relative of the parasite that causes malaria), which were 100% effective in tests in mice. The vaccine consists of strands of genetic material known as messenger RNA, which can be designed to code for any viral, bacterial, or parasitic protein.

A stepping stone for the development of TB vaccine

A stepping stone for the development of TB vaccine
A team of scientists led by Oxford University have made a discovery that could improve the chances of developing an effective vaccine against Tuberculosis. The researchers have identified new biomarkers for TB which have shown for the first time why immunity from the widely used BCG vaccine is so variable. The biomarkers will also provide valuable clues to assess whether potential new vaccines could be effective.

Flu vaccine protects against multiple strains including H1N1

Flu vaccine protects against multiple strains including H1N1
  Researchers at the University of Georgia and Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of Sanofi, announced the development of a vaccine that protects against multiple strains of both seasonal and pandemic H1N1 influenza in mouse models. They published their findings recently in the Journal of Virology.

Grass extract produces thinner and stronger condoms

Grass extract produces thinner and stronger condoms
Microscopic fibers produced from grasses enable the production of thinner and stronger condoms, when added to latex. If commercially viable, the discovery could bolster the struggling quest for more popular condoms, increasing usage vastly. The same process could also make possible latex gloves that are less tiring to wear - an important consideration for extended surgery.
