Vaccine Attacks Mosquito Saliva
(Bethesda, MD) — Government doctors are testing a vaccine that would protect against any disease carried by a mosquito. The National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases says the new vaccine in the works targets mosquito saliva, and would help the body prevent mosquito-borne infections from starting. The director of the institute says mosquitoes cause more human disease and death than any other animal, and that a single vaccine for all mosquito-borne diseases would be “monumental.”
