Pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline PLC said Thursday that it has begun international clinical trials of two pandemic vaccines for the bird flu.

Glaxo said that preliminary results

The trials on 800 healthy adults in Germany and Belgium are aimed at testing the safety and ability of the vaccines to boost individuals’ immune response against H5N1, the technical name for the bird flu virus, and the possibility of making the vaccines as widely available as possible to protect against a pandemic.

Hopefully a vaccine comes in time, if the bird flu starts human to human transmission. This of course would most likely stop a bird flu pandemic.
