Angel Antibody

A universal flu vaccine just became a bit more possible. 

That’s big news as concern grows over when—not if—the next global pandemic will hit, and what strain it will be.
 
Researchers discovered a powerful antibody in a patient sample that proved effective against decades of flu strains in animal studies.
 
The trick: It “binds to the parts of the virus that never change.”

It also showed promise as a cure, proving effective even against strains resistant to the antiviral medication Tamiflu.
 
Of course, there’s much research to be done—including figuring out whether all humans can develop the 10G1 antibodies.
