New meningitis vaccine may end meningitis epidemics in west Africa

New meningitis vaccine may end epidemics in west Africa - Guardian


"The deadly meningitis epidemics that sweep across Africa killing many thousands of children could be ended by a new vaccine which has just been successfully trialled, scientists say today.

The vaccine has been developed by a Seattle-based non-profit organisation called the Programme for Appropriate Technology in Health (Path), together with the World Health Organisation and an Indian vaccine producer.

Collectively they call themselves the Meningitis Vaccine Project. Preliminary results of a trial amongst 600 toddlers aged 12 to 23 months in Mali have shown that it is substantially more effective than other vaccines against the meningitis A strain that periodically ravages west Africa. It produced levels of antibodies that were 20 times higher than anything before in the children."
