$147 million investment helped bail out then-struggling Protein Sciences, and the tiny biotech has now produced the first gene-based vaccine to win FDA approval.

The introduction video is quite interesting. I'm still on the fence about this type of therapy, so I need to see the results from more clinical trials.

Quote:In late November, the FDA approved Novartis' new flu vaccine grown in cultures of dog kidney cells instead of the conventional chicken eggs, a faster and more reliable manufacturing process that could help build stockpiles in the event of a pandemic.

Oh much better, I get the flu shot and fall off bed licking my ass and break my neck. 15.gif Seriously, I can't get behind this one bit.
I assume the dogs are euthanized for this grand experiment.

Maybe not, they have two kidneys after all.

True dat, would love to see just how that works; and do they clone the dogs cells to make more kidney tissue, or is this a revolving swipe a dog kidney for big pharma?

I assume this type of shot would manipulate the DNA of the human, to resist Flu Viruses. :/

That's the future. Genetic manipulation to cure diseases. But what else would it change in the human genome?

Cause and effect. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
It might just really mess you up worse than you already are. (By you, I mean humans; not you, personally.)

For sure, because the virus' would probably mutate to win over this new gene therapy too, then what?

I may as well start drinking now then. beerbong.gif Maybe they won't be able to take a foothold in an alcoholic environment. dunno.gif

"Red Wine. It has been found that those who drink a glass of red wine daily are about 20% less likely to contract the flu. It is believed that this may be related to the vitamins and antioxidants, like resveratrol, present in red wine (but largely absent in white or blush wines). Although alcohol tends to depress the immune system, drinking a glass or two of red wine when sick with a cold or flu is probably not detrimental and may prove beneficial. Other studies have shown a daily glass of red wine is beneficial to the heart, and lowers the odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other types of age-related dementia (probably due to the resveratrol). Excessive alcohol use, however, is definitely detrimental to health. "

One glass only...oh well, so be it. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Don't know, I'm not going to the blood lab until I get back from my ski trip in two weeks. She said they will still be able to tell then.
