Soybean SYHT0H2

EFSA Scientific Opinion on the Assessment of genetically modified soybean SYHT0H2, for food and feed uses, under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003

General description of the product
(a) Name of the recipient or parental plant and the intended function of the genetic modification
SYHT0H2 soybean is a genetically modified soybean that is produced by Agrobacterium tumefaciens–mediated transformation. Where cultivated, the intended function of the genetic modification of SYHT0H2 soybean is to facilitate the control of weeds by providing tolerance to HPPD-inhibiting herbicides, such as mesotrione, and to herbicides containing glufosinate ammonium.

From Wikipedia

4-Hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD) inhibitors (HPPD inhbitors) are a class of herbicides that prevent plants by blocking 4-Hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase, an enzyme in plants that breaks down the amino acid tyrosine into molecules that are then used by plants to create other molecules that plants need.

There is a pharmaceutical drug on the market, nitisinone, that was originally under development as an herbicide as a member of this class, and is used to treat an orphan disease, type I tyrosinemia.

Serious! New Oral Polio Vaccine to Bypass Key Clinical Trials Health officials are rushing a genetically engineered product into the field to counter uncontained outbreaks of vaccine-derived polio.

Dec 17, 2019 Robert Fortner, The Scientist.

Quote:” The new vaccine, called nOPV2, might conclusively end the outbreaks, caused by the live virus in the vaccine reverting to a virulent form. But expedited approval means skipping the real-world testing of large clinical trials.Instead, key questions about the vaccine’s effectiveness will be answered in the field.

Vertaling: Frankrijk verbiedt meerdere herbiciden waar glyfosaat in zit.

Maandag zei het Franse gezondheids- en milieu agentschap dat het meerdere herbiciden met glyfosaat verbiedt, het betreft de meeste die in Frankrijk worden verkocht, omdat er te weinig informatie aangeleverd is om gezondheidsrisico´s uit te kunnen sluiten.
