ABSTRACT
The article presents a study, conducted by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) researchers, rerlated to H5N1 avian influenza virus. Here, the researchers adapted a technique using genetically modified viruses to create fragments representing all of the proteins found in the bird flu virus. They mixed these fragments with antibodies from five patients recovering from the H5N1 infection and observed which fragments attracted the patient's antibodies.
