Aluminum Hydroxide
Tested For H5N1 Vaccine!

Aluminum hydroxide is being tested as an adjuvant ("beneficial" additive), to make proposed avian flu vaccine more effective. Like thimerosal, an obvious cause for concern.
UMD To Test Bird Flu Vaccine Additive
(AP) BALTIMORE University of Maryland researchers will begin testing a bird flu vaccine combined with a common additive later this month to see if it will prompt an immune response with a single smaller dose.
Previous tests have found the vaccine is safe, but requires at least two large doses to prompt a moderate immune response, said Dr. James Campbell, a principal investigator in the study.
The researchers hope the addition of aluminum hydroxide, which is currently added to the tetanus vaccine and others, will improve the immune response enough that one smaller dose will be needed, Campbell said.
