Anatoli Brouchkov, head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, says he has not had flu for two years following his injection.
The bacteria,named Bacillus F, has remained alive in permafrost for millions of years.
Scientists have tested it on mice and human blood cells, but Brouchkov says he decided to become a guinea pig for the experiment.
‘I started to work longer, I’ve never had a flu for the last two years,’ he told The Siberian Times
‘After successful experiments on mice and fruit flies, I thought it would be interesting to try the inactivated bacterial culture,’ .
