New treatment gives hope for serious horse disease

A research team from the Department of Microbiology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) has developed a breakthrough vaccine for the highly contagious horse disease strangles, caused by the Streptococcus equi bacterium. The results of the study, published in the journal Public Library of Science (PLoS) Pathogens, show that the new vaccine, based on recombinant DNA technology, is proving highly effective and may even lead to vaccines for streptococcal infections in humans.
