The blood of nine out of 11 mice showed strong antibody response. it was present in the intestines of all 11 mice. Mini-gut cultures or organoids, which replicate the surface of the human gut, witnessed how these antibodies were able to neutralize both viruses.
Further experiments to show how immunized animals from these dual vaccines will be less likely to get sick or die from norovirus is still underway. This study foresees rapid vaccine development for various troublesome organisms in resource-limited environments, like in the developing world where many infections occur.
