Flu Vaccine in Form of Nasal Drops Can Be More Effective than Flu Shots

A recent research, published in the journal Science has discovered a potential way to break down the ability of flu viruses to adapt and mutate. Flu vaccine in form of nasal drops may successfully fight influenza viruses in the future.flu vaccine in form of nasal drops

A team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, found the solution to a vaccine issue with a completely new approach. This approach preserves robust immune responses and works by identifying and eliminating immune evasion function of the viruses.

Ren Sun says: “With this approach, the safety and efficacy requirement of vaccines can potentially be achieved simultaneously. In traditional vaccine development, one is usually sacrificed for the other.”
