Scientists at the University of Warwick in the UK, have announced that they have developed an entirely new way of treating Flu. What is remarkable
about this new discovery though is that it treats all types and strains of the virus, and can be taken in a nasal spray form up to one day after being
exposed to infection, and still work perfectly well.
Scientists say they are developing an entirely new way of providing instant protection against flu.
University of Warwick researchers used a flu virus naturally stripped of some genetic material to compete with other invading flu viruses. This slowed
the rate of infection so much the body could fight it off.
In effect, the invading virus became its own vaccine by triggering an immune response sufficiently powerful to neutralise it before it could gain a
strong enough foothold.

This is fantastic news. The ability of this method to be a “one size fits all” type of treatment, as apposed to the traditional method of new
vaccines every season taken by injection
I think this is Fantastic. The very real and present dangers posed by an Influenza outbreak are huge to humanity. The ability of this new treatment to
be a "one size fits all" type of solution to an ever changing virus is absolutely brilliant. If it goes through to human trials with success it could
save millions upon millions of both Lives and $ spent on health care, and current vaccines.
I hope both the UN and the UK government as a matter of urgency financially back this massively to get it to human trials as soon as is possible, and
then to the world at large.
I also believe that this is the best discovery in modern medicine in many many years and the researchers if it is rolled out to humans should win the
