Early testing on vaccine underway at university’s international vaccine centre
A research lab at the University of Saskatchewan says it hopes to begin field testing a prototype vaccine for bovine tuberculosis in the next two years.
Andrew Potter, CEO of the university’s Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization — International Vaccine Centre, told CBC Radio’s The Afternoon Edition that early lab testing of a prototype has just begun on the first of a planned 250 animals.
“Of course there’s no way to predict,” Potter said of the chances for success. “We could get lucky and have something within a six-month period but it could take two years.”
