Wistar Scientists Pinpoint Mutations Responsible for Ineffectiveness of 2014-2015 Flu Vaccine

ScottHensley.jpg

Viruses like influenza have the ability to mutate over time, and given that the flu vaccines administered during the 2014-2015 season were largely ineffective at preventing the spread of the flu, it appears the virus that recently circulated had taken on mutations not accounted for when last year’s vaccine was developed. Now, researchers at The Wistar Institute identified specific mutations that influenza recently acquired to escape the current vaccine design.

The dramatic resurgence of whooping cough is due, in large part, to vaccinated people who are infectious but who do not display the symptoms, suggests a new study by two Santa Fe Institute researchers in BMC Medicine. The study suggests that the number of people transmitting without symptoms could be many times greater than the number of people transmitting with symptoms – and much higher than previous estimates.
