Human Trials for H1N1/Swine Flu Vaccine are Set to Begin in Australia

Image
Bloomberg News is reporting that the Australian -based specialty biopharmaceutical company CSL Ltd. will be conducting the first human trials of a swine- flu vaccine.

"Clinical human trails for the H1N1/swine flu vaccine are set to begin in Australia as deaths and infections from the H1N1 virus mount worldwide, intensifying demand for a protective shot.

CSL Ltd., the only flu-vaccine maker in the Southern Hemisphere, plans to start the research tomorrow in Adelaide by injecting a group of healthy volunteers with its experimental vaccine, the company said last week. Melbourne-based CSL plans to test the shot in 240 people, ages 18 to 64, during the next seven weeks in preparation for filling orders from Australia, the U.S. and Singapore. "
