Immune system discovery could lead to a vaccine for heart disease

Immune system discovery could lead to a vaccine for heart disease | Longevity science | Scoop.it
A new understanding of the immune system may be paving the way for the development of a vaccine for heart disease.

 

“If successful, a tolerogenic vaccine could stop the inflammation component of heart disease,” [Dr. Klaus] stated. “This could probably be used in conjunction with the statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs) that have already taken a significant chunk out of the numbers of people with heart disease. Together, they could deliver a nice one-two punch that could be important in further reducing heart disease.”

Vaccine to stop heart attacks could be here in 5 years

Vaccine to stop heart attacks could be here in 5 years | Longevity science | Scoop.it
A vaccine delivered in an injection or nasal spray to prevent heart attacks could be available within five years. The vaccine can cut the build up of fat in arteries by up to 70 per cent, according to tests by researchers at Lund University in Sweden. The fatty deposits cause arteries to narrow, meaning the body has to work harder to pump blood, and can lead to a heart attack.

 

Prof Peter Weissberg, the British Heart Foundation medical director, said the vaccine was "very promising".

New vaccine could provide lifetime immunity to nicotine addiction

New vaccine could provide lifetime immunity to nicotine addiction | Longevity science | Scoop.it

Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have developed a vaccine that could help existing smokers quit for good and prevent those yet to try cigarettes from ever becoming addicted.

 

The vaccine turns the recipient’s kidney into a factory continuously churning out antibodies that clear the bloodstream of nicotine before it has a chance to reach the brain and deliver it’s addictive rush. Unlike previously tested nicotine vaccines that only last a few weeks, the effects of a single dose of this new vaccine should last a lifetime.

Law Proposes Forcing People into Experimental Vaccine Trials | Natural Society

Law Proposes Forcing People into Experimental Vaccine Trials | Natural Society | Longevity science | Scoop.it
The AMA is proposing a federal law forcing each person to need to opt-out of experimental vaccine trials, while they are initially automatically enrolled.

 

Through history, vaccines have helped to erradicate polio and minimize outbreaks of diseases like measles and mumps. But has science now tried to do too much with vaccine technology?

 

What do you think about vaccines?
