[IBTimes] Superdrug DRACO to the Rescue; New Drug to Cure Any Viral Infection - Page 6

post #51 of 57
Well I guess they found a cure for the T-Virus smile.gif .... But I still have my zombie Apocalypse plan ready!

Seriously though, this is some great news. Hopefully they can refine it and maybe, just maybe, one day it'll make it into people's hands - but I doubt it. There are cures for diseases known, but drug companies refuse to develop them further. Why cure a disease and eliminate a line of profit when you can keep treating it with your drug and make lots of money?

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have unveiled a new “superdrug,†which they say is capable of curing any virus from influenza to the common cold. The drug is long way from human trials but has been successful in killing viruses in mice by attacking genetic materials in viruses.

An antibiotic that is effective against a wide range of infectious microorganisms which includes both gram positive and gram negative bacteria is called as a Broad spectrum antibiotic.

All people have dreamed of a heal for the common cold. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have revealed a possible “Superdrug†that could heal any virus under the sun. The genetic structure of viruses is what the narcotic attacks, though it likely definitely won't be available for some time. MIT creates Superdrug that might be in the position to get rid of all viruses. The new “superdrug†called DRACO has the potential to kill any and all viruses, including deadly hemorrhagic fevers, polio, all strains of influenza and the common cold. The drug targets the genetic information that viruses use to replicate. DRACO, or Double-stranded RNA Activated Capsase Oligomerizer, attacks a form of ribonucleic acid, a compound found in all forms of life on earth, that only cells that are infected with a virus produce, according to MIT News.

This “Superdrug,” is promising indeed.

With a lot of scientific breakthroughs going on i wouldn't doubt it if researchers nowadays can create medicines that can heal even the most toughest virus there is in the world. I I hope research such as these will continue to flourish, because it's for the benefit of mankind.

It's a shame, but true. It's no longer about the betterment of mankind, it's how much money can be made. Greed has taken over the system, until that is fixed we can't really move forward.
Oh yeah, totally maaan, liek, back when....wait.

When was "it" all about the "betterment of mankind" and not about money? Oh right, never.
