Clinical findings show that people that receive the seasonal flu vaccine also benefit from its protective effect against heart disease; the risk of having a heart attack in the year following vaccination is 50% lower than people who did not receive the vaccination.
The Electronic Biology based study reveals the molecular mechanism underlying the protective effect of the influenza vaccine against cardiovascular diseases. This mechanism could serve as a base for the development of a vaccine against heart disease.

The novel phylogenetic algorithm based on Electronic Biology for the analysis of the pandemic potential of influenza viruses was used. The mutations which are critical for human tropism of H5N1 influenza virus is predicted and experimentally confirmed.
