Related news release from George Washington University:

>A research team led by George Washington University has developed two mRNA vaccine candidates that are highly effective in reducing both malaria infection and transmission.
>“These vaccines were highly effective at preventing infection and they wiped out transmission potential almost entirely,” said Nirbhay Kumar, a professor of global health at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health.
>To see how the mRNA vaccines stacked up against other nucleic acid -based vaccine platforms, Kumar and the team repeated the experiment using DNA plasmids. The mRNA vaccines were far superior in inducing an immune response compared to the DNA-based vaccines, they found.

So so true. Imagine billions of biotech mfg capacity made redundant. That’s what’s likely to happen once they figure out how to use this tech for making therapeutic proteins.
