Hope for asthma vacine


SCIENTISTS in Nantes working for the research body Inserm claim they are well on the way to developing a vacine for asthma.
Trials of the vacine, which works by introducing tiny doses of allergen directly into the muscles, have proved effective on mice and clinical trials on people could start within the next four years.
The number of people, particularly children, suffering from asthma has doubled in the past ten years and is now responsible for a quarter of a million premature deaths a year.
