Important One Health Publication… International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination “Reservoir-Targeted Vaccines as a One Health Path to Prevent Zoonotic Disease” Permission to post on One Health Initiative website October 12, 2016 granted by:   Steve Zatechka, PhD, MBA, Chief Operating Officer, US Biologic, Inc, 20 Dudley, Suite 900, Memphis, TN 38103, USA, Tel: 901-755-6868 E-mail   Abstract “Reservoir-targeted vaccines (RTVs) are emerging as an effective means by which to control the spread of zoonotic and vector-borne diseases. Delivered as an orally-administered antigen, the biologistics involved in the distribution of RTVs are administered as part of a platform solution to address the growing risk from zoonotic and vector-borne diseases. Specific performance measures must therefore be considered in the stable presentation of antigen of a potency to elicit mucosal immunity and control disease transmission. Concomitantly, several criteria are also required in order to administer a commercially feasible and scalable safe and efficacious vaccine into field conditions, for oral consumption. Such a solution further aligns with the One Health Initiative. As an exemplary case study, an RTV addressing the epidemic of Lyme disease is presented.” SEE Complete article at: Note: Dr. Zatechka is a longstanding supporter/advocate of the One Health concept
