New flu vaccine will protect against all strains of influenza for life?
A new flu vaccine which protects against all strains of influenza has had promising results in trials.
Researchers say the vaccine's promise of universal protection could help contain a flu pandemic as it protects against all strains of influenza A, the type invariably responsible for pandemics.

B-strains, which are found only in humans, may cause epidemics but have never caused pandemics.

The vaccine apparently has a significant advantage over existing ones in that it does not have to be reformulated each year to match the prevalent strains of flu and it can be produced by cell culture.

It could therefore easily be stockpiled and used as soon as a pandemic strain emerges.

To date results in human volunteers have shown that the Acam-Flu-A vaccine made by Acambis is safe and produces an immune response against a small protein (peptide) called M2e that is found on the surface of all A-strains of the flu virus.

The vaccine was also tested on ferrets, which are often used in flu research because they are susceptible to human and bird flu.

How do they vaccinate against a strain of influenza that hasn't been INVENTED yet?

This is a good question.
And the thing that made me wonder, was the statement that this vaccine would protect anyone for a lifetime (I heard that on TV). Very strange statement.

The best vaccine is to stay healthy and have a strong immune system. Flu vaccines are shite. They MAKE you sick as opposed to preventing it.

I agree with you, that the best offense is a good defense, but to suggest FLU vaccines do nothing but make you sick is a far cry from the truth, they are very affective and in fact the majority who might get flu after they get the vaccine already have it, or the vaccine they recieved was "to dead". Work in a nursing home for one flu season and you can see the result.

I agree, but thats not the case for everyone. There are people who are sick and a simple flu can just kill them.

Anyway, this winter my mom (80) got really sick after the shot. So she started talking about not getting it next year. But I'm not sure this is for the best.

And I really dont know what we (the younger and healthier) will do after an epidemic breakout. We know we are expecting it. We just dont know when.

Hey no probs :-D

Just thought I'd add to your thread too! (and to provide the BBC link enclosed in mine).

Obviously, some people didn't see mine, so go for it - it's an important story.

The best vaccines in life are the ones that kill you outright.
That way you are immune to every upcoming disease they can invent for the rest of your dead life.
