Project ID: 511060
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

This is the final report for the DISSECT project which was comprehensive, encompassing all the complementary aspects necessary for the development of intervention strategies, including vaccination, immunotherapy, and antivirals to protect against SARS. This report outlines its objectives and reveals that an attenuated live recombinant vaccine, inactivated vaccines, different antivirals, and immune strategies to prevent and protect against Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) have been developed. In addition, a microarray system to diagnose SARS patients has been designed. The efficacy of these tools has been tested in animal models developed by the consortium.
