 New Synthetic Vaccines Developed to Treat Foot and Mouth Disease

In a recent breakthrough in the field of vaccination, scientists have developed a synthetic vaccine using particle accelerator to treat foot and mouth disease in cattle.

The new vaccine uses empty protein shell of the virus, which induces immunity in the animal against the virus. Early trials have produced remarkable results and have the same efficiency as the vaccine formed with live virus. Moreover, it is convenient to store without costly storage equipments.
