How is recombinant DNA be to develop a vaccine?

How is recombinant DNA be  to develop a vaccine?

Cut & splice: Its my understanding that they can produce the code for creating the protein component of a germs cell wall & insert it into the dna of a common bacteria. They grow the bacteria in nutrient rich vats & the bacteria produce the protein in excess & expel it into the vat.That protein can be purified & becomes the basis of a vaccine. Neat technology that has cut down the frequency of vaccine reactions. ...Read more

What is a recombinant clotting factor product?

What is a recombinant clotting factor product?

Ultra High Tech!: These products(which are used to treat a wide variety of bleeding disorders like hemophilia, and von willebrand's disease) are made either by being completely free of human plasma derivative; or use a pasteurized form that is very safe. These products are not without there share of risks; and can potentially cause diseases as well. They are also very, very expensive so let the buyer beware! ...Read more

What are the risks of conventional vaccines? Are recombinant ones better?

What are the risks of conventional vaccines? Are recombinant ones better?

Old vs new technolog: The whole cell pertussis,an early vaccine,was basically dead germs that were broken into pieces and given. This gave great protection, but almost all infants had high fevers by the 2nd or 3rd dose, and it could never be giver after age 6. Today's pertussis is a synthetic replica of part of the germ. Its "clean" origin produces almost no side effects and the vaccine can be given at any age ...Read more
