Watch video: Key immunological observations on the development of pandemic #influenza A #vaccines
Dr Nigel Silman, Strategic Coordinator, Research, HPA Microbiology Services, Health Protection Agency, joined us at the World Vaccine Congress Washington 2011 and delivered a presentation on the Key immunological observations on the development of pandemic influenza A vaccines
The presentation covered:
- Whilst the ferret is the Gold Standard animal model, the lack of immunological reagents limits use
- Using genome sequence data we have produced a microarray assay for cytokines
- Pilot studies have shown immune response to natural infection
- Prospects for designing vaccines which give a “natural” immune response will be discussed
