  • Key Ingredient For Universal Flu Vaccine May Be In Llama Antibodies

Researchers at the Scripps Institute in California infected llamas with multiple types of flu to provoke an immune response, the BBC reported. "We saw a coverage that has never been seen before". "So I think some of the predictions around what we might be seeing this year is that we might be back to an H1N1 season".

The scientists chose the llama because of the peculiarities of its immune system, whose antibodies are easier to handle since they are much smaller than those of humans.

"We hope that we might follow them this year", Murti says of this year's experience Down Under.

The 2017-18 season in Canada was a bit of an anomaly, surprising even some influenza experts.

Despite the hope that this country may duplicate Australia's flu season, Murti says Canadians shouldn't assume there's no point in getting vaccinated. This is why people still need to get immunized with updated vaccines each year and why researchers are still on the hunt for a universal flu vaccine that can combat most if not all types of flu. Children four and younger, pregnant people and seniors are particularly at risk of serious complications due to the flu.

Whole Health Pharmacy Partners, a national network of independent pharmacies, has introduced a virtual reality program to provide a distraction while baring one's arm for the dreaded jab.

Ontario, which began rolling out its publicly funded flu immunization program October 22, is already receiving reports of influenza cases in some regions of the province and has recorded its first few outbreaks in long-term care facilities.

"The rapid onset of protection, along with the unprecedented cross-reactivity of MD3606 to strains of avian influenza, also offers the possibility of using this approach as a prophylactic", says the study.

And that means getting the flu shot, stressed Murti. "The vaccine is available across the province to protect you and your family".
