New British flu vaccine provides immunity for life
The next three years will see a unique vaccine that provides protection against all strains of influenza virus for life, writes The Daily Mail. Developers, London company SEEK, promise to relieve people from both seasonal influenza and the deadly avian or swine flu.
This vaccine should be the best invention of vaccines. Also, the cost will be much lower counterparts. Recall basic vaccines that protect against influenza, have to redo every year due to mutations of the virus, due to changes in the proteins present on the surface of the virus. However, the new vaccine is based on a fundamentally different basis.
Taken as a basis other internal proteins that are common to all strains of the flu. These mutated proteins are not more than 60 years. Rather than rely on antibodies, winning virus vaccine provided protection mechanism based on cytotoxic T cells. Accordingly, the vaccine triggers the production of T-cells. Conducted with rodents and humans tests proved the effectiveness of the vaccine.
