“The animal actually makes the vaccine inside its body by producing the FMD protein necessary to create an immune response,” Dr. Rodriguez said, according to the BBC. “It’s a very good innovation – the most effective way to date and very promising technology. I think it’s going to revolutionize the way we look at FMD vaccines around the world today.”
So a DNA vaccine, then? Hardly revolutionary - but ANYTHING that changes the primitive attitude governments have to the use of FMDV vaccines is to be welcomed.
