Israeli Company Patents Universal Flu Vaccine

Is the flu about to be eradicated once and for all? Dr. Ron Babecoff, the CEO and founder of Israeli company BiondVax, which has patented a vaccine that could potentially fight every strain of flu, certainly thinks so.

“If somebody once thought it would be impossible to eradicate the flu, we are living proof that dreams can be realized,” he told ISRAEL21c.

BiondVax, which is based in Ness Ziona, is the world’s most advanced company in universal flu vaccine research. It is in late Phase 2 clinical trials and recently announced that Israel’s National Authority for Technological Innovation will fund up to 40 percent of a $920,000 project towards ongoing development of the vaccine.
