    New antibody may lead to universal flu vaccine

    Washington: A novel antibody protects mice against a wide range of lethal influenza viruses, according to a study that may lead to the development of a universal flu vaccine that protects against all flu strains.

    The study, published in the journal Science, also suggests that the antibody could help develop a drug to treat and protect against severe cases of flu, including pandemics.

    “There are many strains of influenza virus that circulate, so every year we have to design and produce a new vaccine to match the most common strains of that year,” said Ali Ellebedy, an assistant professor at Washington University in the US.
