THE United States will invest $US1 billion ($1.28 billion) to develop key components for a swine flu vaccine and conduct clinical studies into its efficacy, Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said.
The money will come from already existing funds and will be used to place orders with companies licensed to produce flu vaccine for antigens - the ingredient in a vaccine that causes the body to develop antibodies - and adjuvants, which boost the body's immune response.
