FROG SLIME TO STOP FLU VIRUS
A frog from Southern India has only just provided scientists with a new weapon in their struggle against the flu. The frog’s slime contains a protein, which can kill the flu virus. Whereas existing flu vaccines must be updated on an annual basis, because the virus mutates, the newly-discovered protein affects a place in the virus, which is changing very slowly. So, the protein can provide more lasting protection.
