NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A gene expression signature present in the blood prior to vaccination might help to predict influenza vaccination response — at least in individuals under 35 years old, new research suggests.

Investigators with the Human Immunology Project Consortium (HIPC) and Center for Human Immunology used array-based expression profiling and RNA sequencing to track blood gene expression patterns before and after influenza vaccination in several cohorts comprised of individuals across the age spectrum.
