RV_ Posted March 30, 2016 Report Share Posted March 30, 2016 We are one step closer to a universal vaccine for Flu. Abstract: Researchers at the University of Georgia and Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of Sanofi, announced today the development of a vaccine that protects against multiple strains of both seasonal and pandemic H1N1 influenza in mouse models. They published their findings recently in the Journal of Virology. Excerpt: "This research is part of a broader effort to create a universal influenza vaccine, which would protect against all strains of the virus. "We still have some work to do before we get a truly universal flu vaccine," Ross said. "But the COBRA vaccine we've developed for H1N1 virus subtypes is a major step in the right direction." Researchers from UGA and Sanofi Pasteur, which has a research and development collaboration agreement with UGA, will present their data tomorrow, March 30, at the World Vaccine Congress US 2016 in Washington, D.C."
