New Vaccine For Recurrent Bladder Infections Can Soon Be Developed, Suggests New Study

The second most common bacterial infection in humans are urinary tract infections, and many of them are recurrent. A study reveals the cellular and molecular basis of recurrent bladder infections and suggests possible treatment strategies, such as vaccines, to prevent this common problem. The study was published by Cell Press on February 14th in the journal Immunity.

"Our study shows for the first time that the bladder is unable to mount an effective immune response to bacteria, which could explain the high frequency of recurrent infections," says senior study author Soman Abraham of Duke University Medical Center. "These observations give us a new understanding of how immune responses are regulated in the bladder and may have implications for the treatment of recurrent infections."
