Bird flu vaccine for chickens developed


It's a good thing too cause for a minute there I thought I wouldn't be able to munch on some good ol' KFC extra crispy on my deathbed.

Japanese researchers say they have developed a new type of vaccine to protect chickens against the H5N1 strain of bird flu.

Thank you Japan. Now, can we cure depression in lizards?

In experiments in which the researchers exposed chickens to the H5N1 virus, those chickens that had been injected with the new vaccine remained healthy, while those without the injection all died in two weeks. In addition, the antibodies formed in the chicken as a result of the vaccination remained effective six months after the injection.

Well world you may all rest easy now knowing that after the bird flu wipes out our population, they'll be plenty to eat. Hope your not a vegetarian.
