Abstract: A change in the avain flu virus strain H5N1 has diminished the effectiveness of the vaccine against the disease. Avian flu vaccines are produced according to the gene type Z found in the avian flu virus strain H5N1 in 2003 but another gene type G was detected in 2005 and these two genes are not similar. So vaccines are more effective against type Z and less effective against type G.
