Long Beach, CA;Chicago, IL;Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 02, 2013 -- Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research that says the universal flu vaccine could be one of the most successful ones to date.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/immune/explaining-the-universal-flu-vaccine/), the flu season has become a real source of dread for people and the universal flu vaccine could mean a new hope as it covers many more strains, lowering the chance of the flu to an all time low.
In response to this continuous threat of influenza epidemics, scientists and researchers around the world have taken tremendous efforts in developing a “universal” flu vaccine that would hopefully prevent the occurrence of future epidemics. This universal flu vaccine is based on the findings on various flu virus strains that have been reported from around the world. For example, the latest flu epidemic occurred in 2009, which involved the flu virus H1N1. Despite its recent occurrence, this same strain also resulted in a flu epidemic in 1918. In addition, other flu virus strains were involved in earlier flu epidemics, such as the H3N2 strain during the 1967 epidemic and the H2N2 strain in 1958.
As the Bel Marra Health article reports, the design of the universal flu vaccine will take into account all the features of each strain that has ever been documented to affect human health. Scientists have extensively studied each of these strains that have previously caused cold and flu symptoms in millions of people around the world, and thus they have gained the knowledge on the possible features that could be present in the next wave of flu infections.
The development of a universal flu vaccine is aimed to prevent the spread of the virus in society by equipping the body with antibodies to combat this microorganism. An effective universal flu vaccine will be associated with lower and possibly minimal cases of this infection, and hopefully result in zero deaths in society.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione commented on the research, saying, “Aside from receiving this universal flu vaccine from clinics in the future, the simple use of the cold and flu medication may also help relieve symptoms of discomfort among infected individuals. The release of a universal flu vaccine may also decrease the fear among people regarding infectious diseases that often spread during the winter season.”
