The use of plants for medicinal purposes dates back thousands of years but genetic engineering of plants to produce desired biopharmaceuticals is much more recent. Plant-derived biopharmaceuticals are cheap to produce and store, easy to scale up for mass production, and safer than those derived from animals. Dental caries vaccine produced in plants is a safe and effective approach towards providing long-term protection, for up to a year and is applied topically. The development of this vaccine has been made possible by recent advances in molecular biology and genetic engineering.
