Animal study shows potential of universal influenza vaccine
from Medscape Medical News
A universal influenza vaccine tested on mice and ferrets successfully immunized the animals against a virus strain from 1934, according to scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The experimental vaccine, which consisted of a primer dose and a booster, generated antibodies in mice and ferrets against virus strains from four different decades — not only H1 subtypes of influenza virus A but also other subtypes such as H5N1, or avian influenza.
