    Scientists' unique system of oral vaccine delivery to address global health threats

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., December 15 -- Scientists at The Forsyth Institute and Tufts University have succeeded in describing and validating a unique system of oral vaccine delivery using a common bacteria found in the mouth. Findings published today by Elsevier in Microbes and Infection identify Streptococcus mitis as a successful vector for oral mucosal immunization, and further research will determine its potential clinical use in tuberculosis vaccine development.

    Communication between Bacteria from Nostril/Skin Microbiome Can Influence Pathogen Behavior

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 22, 2014 —  A team of scientists has made an important discovery about the molecular interactions that occur between generally benign species of Propionibacterium bacteria and the pathogenic bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, the cause of most “staph” infections. These bacterial species are commonly found in the human nostrils and, also, on human skin. S.
