American scientists have claimed that a flu vaccine is underway its development process that would immune one against all strains of flu.
The vaccine is being invented by a crew of scientists at the National Institute of Health in Maryland. As per researchers, it would be effective enough to build immunization against all strains of the disease including seasonal flu and flu outbreaks like swine flu.
It would take five years for the one-shot drug to come in the market. It would just require one or two shots of the vaccine to fight against strains of flu for the lifetime.

Scientists are reported to have formed a high-tech dressing that works to introduce pathological changes in the skin. The dressing materials and plasters have been developed by scientists at the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Modular Solid State Technologies EMFT in Munich.
"We have developed an indicator dye which reacts to different pH values, and we have integrated it into a dressing and a plaster. Healthy skin and healed wounds usually show a pH value of below 5", outlined Dr. Sabine Trupp, scientist at the EMFT.

The researchers claimed that prescribing the dose means a measure different to the one presently in use, doctors could be able to make a more accurate dose of statins.
