Vaccine to Prevent Stomach Ulcers?

Wouldn't it be nice to take a vaccine to prevent stomach ulcers? Researchers at Auburn University have developed a nasal vaccine they say protects mice from infection by a bacterial relative of heliobacter pylori, that's called h-pylori for short, which has been identified as the cause of most stomach ulcers. Researchers say that results are promising, but more work needs to be done before the vaccine is ready for humans.
