Radio Sweden reports about our vaccine

Our work of develop a new ETEC-vaccine has been highlighted in Radio Sweden, a non-commercial, independent public service radio broadcaster.

The research project is a successful collaboration between the University of Gothenburg and PATH Vaccine Solutions. Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) bacteria are responsible for some 400 million cases of diarrhoea annually and nearly half a million deaths in the developing world. It is also the major cause of travelers’ diarrhea.

The Swedish vaccine has undergone initial testing in healthy adults in Sweden and larger trials are expected to take place in Bangladesh during next year. If the experiment is successful, a vaccine could be ready for the market in about 5 years.
