Flubok flu vaccine is made from cells of army worms

The Flubok flu vaccine is made using cultured insect cells. The vaccine contains recombinant DNA technology and an insect virus known as baculovirus. It is produced by extracting cells from the fall army worm (Spodoptera frugiperda), a type of caterpillar, and genetically altering them to produce large amounts of hemagglutinin, a flu virus protein that enables the flu virus itself to enter the body quickly. 12 more words
