Researchers from Imperial College London found an approach that could help develop a universal flu vaccine. Scientists analyzed blood samples from 342 people taken during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic and found higher levels of CD8 T cells in volunteers who caught the flu but had mild symptoms or no symptoms. Creating a vaccine that stimulates immune system production of CD8 T cells could help protect against all flu strains and prevent pandemics.
