Vical's H1N1 vaccines tested

According to, Vical has tested their H1N1 flu vaccines on animals, and found the tests to be successful. Their delivery method is unique, injecting genetic material, such as DNA or RNA, that expresses a protein that induces an immune response. This method is successful on animals, but has not yet been marketed for humans.

The Vaccines Development Forum has released their updated agenda, which includes new sessions that will specifically discuss how the vaccines field is responding to the need of rapid vaccine development for the H1N1 vaccine. Check out the PDF here.
