"The pediatric vaccine is a great victory for modern medicine, but it doesn't cover all strains of disease-causing pneumococcus – some of which have recently emerged and are very virulent,"
The researchers focused on developing a vaccine against serotype 3 – a pneumococcal strain that was not included in the pediatric vaccine used for the past decade and that has emerged as a cause of serious pneumonia in adults and children. Serotype 3 can trigger inflammation so overwhelming that it can result in very severe disease or even death.
And why has this more virulent strain emerged over the last decade??
This will never end....another strain will emerge and so on and so forth. Science cannot and will never outsmart or outmanuever mother nature. I truly believe it cannot be done. JMHO.
