BUDAPEST (AFX) - A prototype vaccine against the deadly Asian strain of bird flu being developed in Hungary for humans has already proved effective for birds, the country's veterinary services (ANTSZ) said. 'The effectiveness of the protoype vaccine (against the Asian H5N1 strain of bird flu) is proved among poultry and so it can be used to vaccinate them,' ANTSZ president Laszlo Bujdoso said in a statement quoted by the Hungarian MTI news agency. Hungary's veterinary services are due to announce shortly the results of human clinical trials of this type of vaccine which has been being tested on 150 volunteers since the end of September.

Keep your fingers crossed. Maybe the year 1918 wont be repeating because of the Asian H5N1 strain.

Unfortunately as with vaccines before, it may in fact cause the virus to mutate further and create an all new deadlier strain than we are expecting.

I view vaccines with caution. Great if they work but at what cost in the future.

Your introduction is a verbatim quote from the article. This is forbidden.

Grady! I'm surprised at you.

I am pretty sure it is forbidden for an ATSNN submission, but this is not a news thread. Besides, these types of remarks are best left to a U2U. These types of remarks are certainly discouraged for news submissions though.


Edit: Good for Hungary - hope they got it right!
