Researchers with the Li Ka Shing Institute of Virology, including John Law shown here, have discovered a new vaccine that shows promise for treating all strains of hepatitis C.
A University of Alberta researcher and Canada Excellence Research Chair in Virology has discovered a vaccine that will potentially help combat hepatitis C.
Michael Houghton, who led the team that discovered the hepatitis C virus in 1989, announced his findings Feb. 15 at the Canada Excellence Research Chairs Summit in Vancouver. Currently, there are no vaccines against the disease.
Houghton, who is also the Li Ka Shing Chair in Virology at the University of Alberta, says the vaccine, developed from a single strain, has shown to be effective against all known strains of the virus. It took more than 10 years to develop and started while he was working for the drug company Novartis.
