Researchers give 'one-off vaccines' a shot

Abstract:
A consortium of British private companies and a university facility has been awarded $2.6m (€2.13m) by the UK’s Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to produce a slow release vaccine which will eliminate the need for booster doses, improving compliance and slashing the cost of vaccination.

Medical technology firm Cambridge Biostability, which leads the project, believes it knows how to achieve this using nanotechnology and is confident it can have such a vaccine in the market in just five years.
