Gene Therapy Gives Mice Broad Protection to Pandemic Flu Strains, Including 1918 Flu

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

They demonstrated that a single dose of an adeno-associated virus expressing a broadly neutralizing flu antibody into the noses of animal models gives them complete protection and substantial reductions in flu replication when exposed to lethal strains of H5N1 and H1N1 flu virus. These were isolated from samples associated from historic human pandemics – the infamous 1918 flu pandemic and another from 2009.
