Researchers at the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Medicine found that the vaccine lowered LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) by nearly 30 percent in mice and monkeys, which the researchers described as "promising."

The vaccine works by blocking the cholesterol-raising protein and will be given once a year if it reaches pharmacy shelves. Researchers also predict the vaccine could cost less than $100 per dose.
