British Development Of The "super" Flu Vaccine

in Vaccine

Oxford University researchers are developing a "super" flu Vaccine . It needs only one vaccination can protect human life against any influenza viruses, can be said once and for all.

British "Daily Mail" reported on the 6th, the new vaccines will have an effect on all influenza viruses. Super influenza matrix protein and nucleoprotein vaccine inoculation will enter the human body, "attract" attention to the immune system. These viral proteins attack cells begin to reproduce, the human T cell will learn to identify the virus, kill them. Next time experience of these proteins, T cells can already do well to act as "killer." It is reported that once the super-flu vaccine safe and effective through testing, is expected to be routine vaccination within 5 years.

Flu virus contagious, spread fast and wide variations of how to prevent influenza has been a major problem afflicting humankind. British "Daily Mail" on the 6th report, Oxford University medical researchers are developing a super-flu vaccine, it is just one dose, can protect human life from all types of influenza viruses.

Traditional vaccines require frequent just one dose the vaccine inoculation Super

As strong variability of influenza viruses, in order to prevent influenza, vaccine manufacturers producing traditional vaccine often "exhausted", influenza vaccination had had to frequently update the vaccination, annual vaccination are common.

Oxford University super vaccine project leader Sarah? Gilbert said that the popularity of super-vaccine, influenza vaccine will significantly change the application form.

Gilbert said: "The influenza vaccine is updated annually, will never be able to provide enough help. With super vaccine, we can make all vaccinations, prevention and control of influenza will become as easy as measles, basic the need for more vaccine. "

She also predicted that once the super-flu vaccine through the safety tests and test results, expected in five years to become routine vaccination.

"Daily Post" said that although the super-vaccine immunization only once, but in order to ensure the validity, the researchers recommend vaccinated every 5 to 10 years, one dose of activator.

From the surface of the virus within the vaccine virus works to overturn the traditional

Super-flu vaccine for all influenza viruses have an effect, where it's magic?

Traditional flu vaccine aimed at the surface of influenza virus hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N) two kinds of protein design, since influenza virus mutates quickly, they will change the structure of the protein, so traditional vaccines The design also requires constant adjustment.

Oxford Super flu vaccine, aimed at the influenza virus matrix protein and nucleoprotein inside, in different types of influenza virus within these two proteins are very similar.

Program under development, will super-influenza matrix protein and nucleoprotein vaccine inoculation into the human body, to "attract" the attention of the immune system. These viral proteins attack cells begin to reproduce, the human T cell will learn to identify the virus and kill them. Suffer from such human next time when viral protein, T cells can already do well to act as "killer."

Effective R & D efforts of various countries is very difficult to pre-empt the machine

According to statistics, Britain has more than 1500 million people vaccinated each year tradition of influenza vaccine each year so the money spent to reach 115 million pounds (about 230 million U.S. dollars).

Gilbert said the popularity of super-flu vaccine enables the protection of children susceptible to influenza, but also allow effective vaccination of the elderly poor access to a decrease in the number of influenza viruses become more healthy, but also to work decrease the probability of influenza among patients and economic benefit.
