Bird Flu Update

March 05, 2007
Researchers in the U.S. believe they have found an easily-produced vaccine for the killer H5N1 bird flu. The vaccine would be "easy to produce, fast to produce and as broadly protective as possible. Tests on mice have shown the animals had produced the antibodies necessary to fight the disease. A doctor claims to have overcome the problem of manufacturing enough of the vaccine to get it out fast enough to halt a pandemic. The process involves copying genetic material from flu virus protein and combining it with antibodies to help stimulate the immune system. The technique could be easily applied to other forms of flu virus too.
