Vaccine hope for sufferers of auto-immune diseases like Crohn's and rheumatoid arthritis

Abstract:
A synthetic vaccine based on nanotechnology holds out the promise of halting auto-immune diseases such as Crohn's and rheumatoid arthritis, it was reported today.

Early research has shown that the molecular principle behind the approach works, at least in mice.

Scientists are excited by the findings which hold out the prospect of new treatments for a broad range of conditions. The research could also lead to new ways of tackling the spread of cancer.

However, much more work is needed before experts can be sure the therapy is safe for humans.
