Vaccine?

Has anyone seen the article in the Chicago Tribune about an asthma vaccine? [ removed ]

Any thoughts? Anyone know of any human trials in or around New York City?

No one has any comments about a possible vaccine?

Re: Vaccine?

I haven't heard of such a thing and, frankly, I can't believe it. There are so many triggers for asthma, how could there be a vaccine for it?

Re: Vaccine?

After a quick tour of the internet, it seems there are two different companies working on two different types of "vaccine" both of which would address the immune response of the lungs. It looks like one being developed in the UK is ready for patient trials. The one in the US hasn't even applied for FDA approval for patient trials yet. Neither sounds like a traditional vaccine, but I'm not a scientist so who knows.
