A lot many cases of Hendra and Nipah viruses have been registered, but now it seems that things would get under control. A research team from different institutes has been able to find an anti- Nipah vaccine, which has shown its success during animal trial.
Institutes that were involved in the study were the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU), which is in Maryland, the National Institutes of Health (NIH's), Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) and Boston University School of Medicine, among others.
Experiment was taken out on African green monkeys and it has been found that the vaccine, which contains G glycoprotein, has been quiet effective in registering a win against the deadly Nipah virus.
Study researchers shared that both the viruses, Nipah and Hendra has strike different parts on world in somewhere around 1990s. Since then there has been many outbreaks, which had cost many lives and except that people have suffered a lot due to it.
Respiratory problems, contamination and encephalitis were some of the common problems that occur due to the viruses. "These findings are really quite promising and appear to offer a real potential treatment for Hendra virus infection in people”, said Christopher C. Broder.
