Advances in Universal Influenza Virus Vaccine Design and Antibody Mediated Therapies Based on Conserved Regions of the Hemagglutinin

This book chapter, published in Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology, discusses how the threat of novel influenza viruses emerging into the human population, as well as the short duration of protection conferred by licensed vaccines, have spurred research efforts to develop novel new therapeutics against influenza viruses, including improved vaccines. The authors note that the aim is to develop an improved vaccine that elicits broader protection and induces long-lived immunity against seasonal influenza. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
