Initial Results Show Pregnant Women Mount Strong Immune Response To 1 Dose Of 2009 H1N1 Vaccine

Stumble Upon Toolbar
Healthy pregnant women mount a robust immune response following just one dose of 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine, according to initial results from an ongoing clinical trial.

Read details at Sciencedaily.com   

When the debates are raging on the efficacy of the H1N1 vaccine, this news should bring some credibility to the vaccination program. There are claims and counter claims over the sideeffects of the vaccine. But to prove that a vaccine is clinically unfit it should be proved as such scientifically I think.

It is still too early to say that the vaccine is a complete success, as also discarding it outright is not the solution to the problem. We need to tread cautiously and follow the best advice of the Research community.

According to the report millions of tons of vegetables end in trash before being consumed. When the world is getting hungrier each day, this new innovation could not have come at a more opportune time, this could go a long way.

A professor has developed an innovative new way to keep produce and flowers fresh for longer periods of time. The microbiologist's method uses a naturally occurring microorganism -- no larger than the width of a human hair -- to induce enzymes that extend the ripening time of fruits and vegetables, and keeps the blooms of flowers fresh
