Glad it works on mice, but....

Singapore scientists develop asthma vaccine

Gotta hear Allison's comments on this one. (For those of you visiting, Allison is my best friend and a Chiropractor -- therefore, notoriously anti-vaccine. But considering her love for Bryn, her thoughts on the subject will be pretty intriguing!)

My thoughts -- can we test it on something larger than a mouse before hailing it as a cure? (Although the thought of animal testing turns my stomach...)

And: Using a dust mite gene? How does that affect kids like Bryn who developed asthma after two bouts of bronchiolitis? His asthma isn't necessarily dust or allergy related.

Do we need a more comprehensive definition of asthma here?
