A Novel Vaccine Development Method

The Nipah vaccine being developed by PHV and Crozet uses recombinant DNA technology. Like many of the most successful vaccines used to protect against infectious diseases (e.g. measles, mumps, German measles, chickenpox, smallpox, oral polio, rotavirus, yellow fever), the recombinant vaccine against Nipah is a live, replication competent vaccine, engineered to balance safety and effectiveness.
