(Medical Xpress)—Could a drug commonly prescribed to prevent bone loss boost the power of #vaccines?

 

New research from Harvard Medical School shows that adding compounds known as bisphosphonates to both commercial and experimental vaccines enhances their effectiveness in mice, raising hopes they could help people mount a more robust #immune response.

That would be AMAZING - if it works in people, and not just mice.  Cheap as well - AND cleared for use in humans.

Icon #Genetics successfully completes Phase I clinical study with plant-made personalised NHL vaccines

Icon #Genetics successfully completes Phase I clinical study with plant-made personalised NHL vaccines | Health care industry | Scoop.it

Munich, January 31, 2014 - Icon Genetics GmbH (ICON) successfully completed a Phase I clinical study on the safety and immunogenicity of personalized vaccines to treat patients with follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The vaccines, which consist of monoclonal antibodies derived from each patient's own tumor and serve as disease-specific markers, were administered to induce a tumor-specific immune reaction. The vaccines were manufactured in tobacco plants using magnICON® technology in the facility owned and operated by ICON in Halle, Germany. Results of the 27-patient study demonstrated the safety, tolerability and tumor-specific immunogenicity of the plant-made vaccines. #Cancer patients receiving ICON's vaccines did not exhibit the types of side effects that are typically associated with more traditional approaches for cancer treatment. Thus, these vaccines have the potential of offering patients improved quality of life throughout their therapeutic regimen. While not designed to assess efficacy, the study evaluated immune responses to vaccination. Of the patients evaluated at study completion, 73% were found to have mounted a tumor-specific immune response. The Phase I trial was sponsored by Bayer Innovation GmbH and conducted under US FDA IND at 3 clinical centers in the United States, with primary treatment at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Baylor Medical Center, both in Dallas, Texas, with local coordination and oversight provided by DAVA Oncology, LP.

#Viruses affect an #African flamingo population by killing their bacterial food source

#Viruses affect an #African flamingo population by killing their bacterial food source | Health care industry | Scoop.it

Trophic cascade effects occur when a food web is disrupted by loss or significant reduction of one or more of its members. In East African Rift Valley lakes, the Lesser Flamingo is on top of a short food chain. At irregular intervals, the dominance of their most important food source, the cyanobacterium Arthrospira fusiformis, is interrupted. Bacteriophages are known as potentially controlling photoautotrophic bacterioplankton. In Lake Nakuru (Kenya), we found the highest abundance of suspended viruses ever recorded in a natural aquatic system. We document that cyanophage infection and the related breakdown of A. fusiformis biomass led to a dramatic reduction in flamingo abundance. This documents that virus infection at the very base of a food chain can affect, in a bottom-up cascade, the distribution of end consumers. We anticipate this as an important example for virus-mediated cascading effects, potentially occurring also in various other aquatic food webs.
