An AIDS vaccine in a breakfast cereal?

Groups seeks to stop biopharming harvest

An AIDS vaccine in a breakfast cereal?

It could happen. But a group of doctors and others don't want it happening in Oregon — at least not yet.

They will ask the Legislature next month to impose a four-year moratorium on biopharming, crops genetically altered to fight or prevent human diseases. The state chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility is concerned that such crops would infiltrate the environment, exposing residents to drugs they don't need. Biopharming represents the latest twist on genetic modification in agriculture. Biotechnology companies already have produced corn varieties containing a protein found in HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Their goal is to manufacture food products, such as breakfast cereals, to orally deliver an AIDS vaccine.

Biopharming Draws Criticism

An AIDS vaccine in your breakfast cereal? It could happen.

But a group of Oregon doctors is asking the legislature next month to ban biopharming. That's the latest twist on genetic engineering. The goal of biopharming is to produce food -- like breakfast cereal -- that contains medications, including vaccines. Some are concerned the foods could infiltrate the general food supply, exposing people to drugs they don't need.
