Candidate for universal flu vaccine protects against multiple strains: A modified-RNA vaccine elicits protective response in mice to a conserved region of the flu virus

The candidate vaccine elicited a strong antibody response to a structure on the surface of flu viruses, called the hemagglutinin (HA) stalk. It protected mice from infection by various flu strains.
