Does surviving swine flu super-charge your immunity?

Posted by on January 16th, 2011

Researchers studying nine patients who survived swine flu during the H1N1 pandemic have noticed that they produced a wide range of antibodies that could be used to fight off other strains.

Currently they’re looking to see if they can use this to make a universal vaccine that could fight off any type of influenza – even the ones we’re most concerned about here on Weird Things:

  • Rage virus
  • Slow moving zombie virus
  • Fast moving zombie virus
  • Emo vampire virus
  • Glittery vampire virus
  • We’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope it doesn’t give us an immunity to the bad-ass day walker virus.
