Nanoparticles take a fantastic, magnetic voyage

Vials of  Influenza A(H1N1) monovalent vaccine are pictured on the labelling collection table at Sanofi Pasteur plant in Swiftwater, Pennsylvania, in this recent photograph released to Reuters on September 29, 2009. The chief executive officer of Sanofi-Aventis said on Tuesday his company has begun U.S. shipments of its H1N1 swine flu vaccine ahead of schedule. Swine flu was declared a pandemic in June and is spreading widely in most of the United States. At least 46 U.S. children under 18 have died from the flu strain since April, when it was first detected in the United States.
