As reported by Kevin O’Sullivan with the Irish Times “Irish scientists have discovered a distinct immune response system in newborn babies, which could lead to a reduction in the age at which vaccines can be first administered and in the need for ‘multiple booster’ shots.”

The scientists have identified “a class of danger signals that are highly efficient at triggering an immune response in young infants.” Then article notes that “pediatric research is seriously underfunded in Ireland,” representing less than 2 % of overall medical research funding.  TrialSite News recommends a read of the Irish Times article for more information on the serious findings by the Irish researchers.
