'working towards a nasal vaccine for pneumonia'
The effect of new strains (types) of bacteria

We are developing vaccines to protect against a bacteria called Pneumococcus. Vaccine are needed as this bacteria can cause infection particularly in young children, elderly and those with other illnesses.

Researchers in Liverpool have developed a way to test vaccines for some types of this bacteria and plan to study more types (strains).
We invite healthy volunteers to have a few drops of the bacteria in the nose then monitor the response carefully.
