University of Arizona inventors have developed a Lactobacillus system that serves as a vaccine platform withthe potential to develop COVID-19 therapeutics. This technology is the administration of probiotic bacterial strains with increased expression of a Clostridium difficile attachment protein. These strains, when administered in animal models challenged with high doses of a virulent C. difficile strain prevented death.Background:Clostridium difficile is the leading cause of healthcare-associated diarrheas worldwide. C. difficile has been associated with increased mortality and relapsing diseases in the past fifteen years.
