U.S. scientists say they've found how the avian influenza virus "hides" from the body's immune system, preventing an antiviral response from infected cells.

Scientists and researchers have taken a big step closer to a cure for the most common strain of avian influenza, or "bird flu," the potential pandemic that has claimed more than 200 lives and infected nearly 400 people in 14 countries since it was identified in 2003.

As they design new drugs to fight off influenza, scientists may not need to attack the virus directly. Instead, they may be able to stave off infection by targeting one of more than 100 proteins inside host cells on which the virus depends.

Researchers have found nearly 100 genes that the H5N1 bird flu virus needs in a host to be able to duplicate. The finding will help researchers better understand how to keep the virus from reproducing.

Flu viruses must be able to break a very specific code before it can enter and infect human respiratory cells, U.S. researchers said on Sunday, presenting a new understanding of how influenza works.
