The Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) has received a licence application from PaxVax Australia Pty Ltd (PaxVax), application number DIR 126, for the intentional release of a genetically modified (GM) bacterial vaccine against cholera into the environment in Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Victoria.
