    Israel's Universal Flu Vaccine Heads for Universal Acceptance

    Weizmann Institute research that led to a ""universal"" flu vaccine – meaning it works against all forms of influenza – has now been granted patents by the European Union and Japan. The vaccine was developed by an Israeli firm, BiondVax, which is now preparing to license it to governments and pharma companies. Before this breakthrough, scientists developed vaccines to fight each strain of flu.

    Israelis Find Cure for Stem Cell Debate

    As Israel21c reports, Weizmann Institute research has rendered moot the ethical and moral arguments against the use of embryonic stem cells. Thanks to the research of Dr. Yaqub (Jacob) Hanna, adult stem cells can be ""reprogrammed"" to an embryonic stem cell-like state in an efficient manner, meaning they can be used with much greater ease.

  • Teaming up antibiotics to fight deadly superbugs

    Nobel laureate Prof. Ada Yonath led a team of American and Israeli researchers to study antibiotic-resistant ""superbugs."" The group found that two commonly used antibiotics, largely ineffective on their own, are powerful enough to treat such infections when used in combination. Antibiotic resistance is, however, on the rise.

    Beginner's Luck: The Power of Stem Cells

    Young stem cells, like young people, have unlimited options before them. They can become anything – businessperson, farmer, heart cell, skin cell. But then instructions kick in, and the young stem cell helps create the part of the body it is fated to become. However, scientists may be able to use the early potential of stem cells to treat a number of diseases.
