Edible Rice Vaccine

JAMA. 2005;294(23):2961. doi:10.1001/jama.294.23.2961-d

An edible vaccine against pollen allergies based on genetically modified rice reduced allergic responses in mice, suggesting such an approach could lead to safer and less expensive allergy therapy for humans, according to findings by Japanese scientists. The report appeared on October 31 in an early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (Takagi et al. 2005, http://www.pnas.org).
