Vaccine for Staph?

Published by at 4:32 am under Uncategorized

I think most of you know that I am interested in Staphylococcus aureus, particularly alternatives to treating this disease with antibiotics.  This week I read a news report that describes a hopeful vaccine.  http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/12/131220143124.htm

The research was published in the Journal of Infectious Disease.  I wonder what type of biotech is required to make this vaccine?

    Is there not a very specific danger to this, though? If they simply inhibit the toxin, then what will be the affects of silent infections? If no toxins are produced, people will not be able to tell they are infected until the bacteria are overwhelming. Is that an issue if they are simply left to reproduce?
