HONG KONG — A new influenza A vaccine has been shown to be capable of inducing protective immune responses against multiple influenza A viruses in mice. Researchers from the School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) collaborated with U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) scientists to develop the new vaccine, which they described in the April 1, 2014, edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences as a breakthrough for conventional seasonal flu vaccines that protect against only one or possibly a few viral subtypes.
