Cash-strapped researcher ‘on verge of vaccine’

The Jakarta Post, 15 Desember 2010

BOGOR: A researcher in Bogor claims he was on the verge of finding a vaccine for the avian virus and diarrhea when he had to suspend his research due to a lack of funding.
Rahmat Hidayat of the Bogor Institute of Agriculture (IPB) said his one-year-old research, which involved creating a cocktail of the H5N1 virus, E-Coli and S. Enteritidis bacteria, had to be stopped due to budget constraints.
“We have been working on the research for one year now and we already have a result called Imunoglobin Yolk (Ig Y) in the form of spray dry yolk, freeze yolk and yolk essence,” Rahmat said Monday at an international seminar at the IPB campus in Bogor.
He said the Imunoglobin Yolk (lg Y) had the potential to fight the H5N1 virus, diarrhea-causing bacteri Escherichiacoli and Salmonella enteritidis.
Rahmat said the vaccine could potentially prove to be a savior for the thousands of poor people in the country who suffer from diarrhea, as well as a cure for bird flu.
“Since the government does not give us the funds, we must now hope that the private sector will lend a hand,” he said. — JP

  1. sebenernya abang tobing ini nemuin susu atau vaksin toh?jadi bingung….

  2. wah selamet drh rahmat dapat menghasilkan karya yang sangat bermanfaat untuk masyarakat, mg2 karyanya bisa di aplikasikan dan terbukti tidak bohong….bravo genetika 21

  3. Siip lah..Tp boleh ngasih masukan or pertanyaan. Pada kuning telur ayam emang terdapat Ig Y tapi dengan konsentrasi rendah. Pada kasus Yolksac infection or omphalitis pada anak ayam, kita sering temukan E.coli dan Salmonella spp-terutama Group D (pathogen), Jadi Kl Ig Y bisa efektip immune terhadap bakteri pathogen, menurut saya perlu penelitian lebih mendalam. Untuk efektif terhadap AI saya kira perlu kajian Biology molekuler yang mendalam, karena kita tahu. penyakit AI terutama HPAI menyerang seluruh tubuh ayam dan Ig Y terdapat telur sementara yang dominana menjadi barir immune pada ayam adalah Ig M dan Ig A, itupun kalau virus lapangan dan antibody dalam tubuh cocok. Yah ini sekedar masukan dan untuk menghidupkan diskusi…salam dokter hewan
