The polio vaccine, which was developed by Jonas Salk in the 1940s and used to treat polio in the 1960s, has become one of the most popular treatments in the world.
But the vaccine’s effectiveness has suffered as the number of cases has risen dramatically.
Now, there are fears that the polio virus may have mutated, causing a resurgence.
As a result, scientists have been trying to find a way to use a gene to prevent the virus from mutating.
This gene is called the PIK gene, which is part of the polio genome.
Researchers are now searching for a way for the PILOT gene to block the mutation.
The PILOTS gene is found on the top of the virus and is known to be the key to stopping the virus mutating and making the vaccine more effective.
