Strategies in the development of vaccines to prevent infections with group A streptococcus.

There has long been interest and demand for the development of a vaccine to prevent infections caused by the Gram-positive organism group A streptococcus.

Here we review various strategies employed to achieve this goal. We also discuss the approach that we have pursued, a non-host reactive, conformationally constrained minimal B cell epitope from within the C-repeat region of M-protein, and the potential limitations in moving forward.
