Infected with influenza develop antibodies

The vaccine to neutralize different types of knowledge of flu promises to be close, studies of antibodies produced in people infected with Influenza AH1N1 could result in a "universal" vaccine, scientists in the newspaper said Journal of Experimental Medicine.
