A report in The Scientist says efforts to create a universal flu vaccine are closer to fruition, with some researchers looking at how to get the immune system to create antibodies against portions of a protein shared among multiple viruses. Other researchers are targeting the M2 protein, which helps the flu virus get rid of its contents into a target cell, while still others think the T cells that kill infected cells will play a key role in a universal vaccine.
