Flu fighting protein

There may now be a new powerful weapon for attacking flu viruses.

An international team manufactured a new protein that can fight some of the deadliest epidemics, including swine flu and avian flu.

The manufactured genes disable key functions of the viruses. 

Researchers hope the discovery will lead to new dugs for fighting both the flu and other diseases, including smallpox.
