The University of Southampton in the UK have found a new way to develop a vaccine that provides a solution to India's vector-borne diseases.

In a study published in Science Immunology, scientists were able to prove that global pathogens such as Zika, dengue, and Hepatitis C can be recognized by natural killer (NK) cells through a single receptor called KIR2DS2. This receptor is able to target a non-variable part of the virus called the NS3 helicase protein which does not change, unlike other proteins, thus allowing the NK cells to exterminate it after the immune system grabs hold of it. Using NS3 helicase region, a new type of vaccine can be developed which can be used to help protect people from rampant infections like Hepatitis C, such as Zika virus, dengue virus, yellow fever virus and Japanese encephalitis virus.
