Could a Newly Developed RNA-Based Vaccine Offer Lifelong Protection From Flu?
A new experimental flu vaccine made out of mRNA that may work for life is now being developed.
Researchers said that the vaccine, made of the genetic material that controls the production of proteins, protected animals against influenza and, unlike traditional vaccines, it may work for life and can potentially be manufactured quickly enough to stop a pandemic.
Researchers explain that the current vaccines on the market work by instructing our immune systems to recognize two virus proteins called HA and NA. However, the problem is that these two proteins are constantly evolving, which is essentially why new vaccines are always needed.
Researchers believe that the secret for the everlasting vaccine against the multiple flu virus strains is to target something that never changes…
