Giving injections replaces edible vaccines TOMATO carry rabies, a green salad protects against hepatitis B. But there is a whole host of other plants that are genetically altered so that the carry vaccines against various infectious diseases. Although the idea that plants carry the vaccine against the disease seems close to many science fiction than reality, researchers are already 15-odd years eksperimeniraju with edible vaccines. It would in the future, especially in developing countries, should replace the current method of vaccination using needles. - It is believed that the vaccine is suitable for cooking any kind of fruit and vegetables, bananas and fruits such as tomatoes and leafy vegetables such as lettuce. The advantage of this way of producing a vaccine is that it can be cheaply produced in third world countries. Furthermore, plants are not hosts of human pathogens and from this vaccine would not be risky. It is worth noting also that the plants are already used for other pharmaceutical preparations and purification processes are already developed - explaining academic Sibila Jelaska. No doubt, doctors have been using vaccines have achieved remarkable progress in the fight against infectious diseases and are now a plague, like smallpox, which in the past referred countless lives, only now the subject of history. Unfortunately, in many Third World countries there are no organized services for the care of public health of the population so that each year the vaccine does not reach 20 percent of children in developing countries, die every year due to which three million youngsters. Health statistics show that 20 percent of these children are deprived of vaccines against six diseases: polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, measles, tetanus and tuberculosis. If you already have the vaccination campaign in poor countries, whose population is often hampered by political unrest or war, and more recently climate extremes, difficult or even impossible, we could offer them the vaccine in the form of food - is considered an American scientist Charles Arntzen from the University of Arizona. He got the idea of edible vaccines came 1992nd While he was in Bangkok and watched as a young Thai mother soothes her baby Crying Feeding it a piece of banana. It was just at the time when the World Health Organization (WHO) scientists around the world invited to develop cheap orlanog vaccine should not be kept in the refrigerator. - Why, instead of vaccination by a needle we used bananas - Asked Arntzen. Charles ArntzenKako to develop edible vaccines, Arntzen and his colleagues used genetic engineering methods. Their main goal is to improve the existing vaccines for hepatitis B, which is produced by 80-ies. As you are aware, the hepatitis B virus (VHB) can cause persistent infection, cirrhosis and liver cancer, and it is considered that it infected 350 million people. A year die from it up to one million people. Vaccination against hepatitis B is carried out in childhood, but it turned out that for many Third World countries is inappropriate because the vaccine must be kept at low temperatures, which is a big problem in countries where the disease is often, for example in Bangladesh. Furthermore, this vaccine is given three times, which implies the existence of a network of services for the protection of public health to take care of how many times the inhabitants of certain areas vaccinated. Arntzen in the past 15 years experimenting with edible vaccines in bananas and potatoes. These vaccines so far tested on laboratory animals. So during the clinical trials with edible vaccines based on potato researchers gave mice the raw potatoes genetically modified to contain a vaccine against hepatitis B. Although the results were very promising, due to widespread melt the genetically modified food Arntzen gave up bananas and potatoes and now focused on tobacco. His idea is that the gene for hepatitis B vaccine injected into the DNA of wild tobacco plant, grow the plants, then cooled and dried, and processed with the plant material in the form of gelatin capsules, which are of a comparable conventional medications. - This is a wonderful, safe and effective vaccine - said Charles Arntzen American weekly magazine Newsweek. He and his colleagues are now testing the vaccine on laboratory animals. However, scientists around the world are trying to develop edible vaccines. Thus, the Japanese researcher of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) published the results of allergy vaccines that are developed in rice. These precedents for the vaccine in mice, the scientists argue that "opens up new possibilities for the treatment of allergies in the future." - Today is investigating the possibility of producing a variety of edible vaccines. In addition to vaccines against hepatitis B virus, and develop edible vaccines against rabies, cholera and swine plague. Since the product of recombinant antibodies are those that are used either for diagnostic or teraputske needs. Basically it examines the production of monoclonal antibodies and specific recombinant antibodies. For example, IgG / IgA are working in tobacco as a way to combat dental caries, a human simplex virus (HSV) for the treatment of some gynecological infections - said the academician S. Jelaska, adding that the plants can be used to produce human insulin, interferon and eritroepoetina.
