"DRACO" anti virus drug to cure all disease
[link to web.mit.edu]

Most bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics such as penicillin, discovered decades ago. However, such drugs are useless against viral infections, including influenza, the common cold, and deadly hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola.

Now, in a development that could transform how viral infections are treated, a team of researchers at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory has designed a drug that can identify cells that have been infected by any type of virus, then kill those cells to terminate the infection.


The microscope images above show that DRACO successfully treats viral infections. In the left set of four photos, rhinovirus (the common cold virus) kills untreated human cells (lower left), whereas DRACO has no toxicity in uninfected cells (upper right) and cures an infected cell population (lower right). Similarly, in the right set of four photos, dengue hemorrhagic fever virus kills untreated monkey cells (lower left), whereas DRACO has no toxicity in uninfected cells (upper right) and cures an infected cell population (lower right). | Enlarge image
In a paper published July 27 in the journal PLoS One, the researchers tested their drug against 15 viruses, and found it was effective against all of them — including rhinoviruses that cause the common cold, H1N1 influenza, a stomach virus, a polio virus, dengue fever and several other types of hemorrhagic fever.

The drug works by targeting a type of RNA produced only in cells that have been infected by viruses. “In theory, it should work against all viruses,” says Todd Rider, a senior staff scientist in Lincoln Laboratory’s Chemical, Biological, and Nanoscale Technologies Group who invented the new technology.

Because the technology is so broad-spectrum, it could potentially also be used to combat outbreaks of new viruses, such as the 2003 SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) outbreak, Rider says.

...

Each DRACO also includes a “delivery tag,” taken from naturally occurring proteins, that allows it to cross cell membranes and enter any human or animal cell. However, if no dsRNA is present, DRACO leaves the cell unharmed.

Most of the tests reported in this study were done in human and animal cells cultured in the lab, but the researchers also tested DRACO in mice infected with the H1N1 influenza virus. When mice were treated with DRACO, they were completely cured of the infection. The tests also showed that DRACO itself is not toxic to mice.

The researchers are now testing DRACO against more viruses in mice and beginning to get promising results. Rider says he hopes to license the technology for trials in larger animals and for eventual human clinical trials.

This work is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the New England Regional Center of Excellence for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases, with previous funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and Director of Defense Research & Engineering (now the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering).

I find it weird that that this new drug is called Draco. Many people will just shrug it off as nothing.

If it's as significant as it purported to be, then it may not be by accident that someone named it 'Draco'.

In the movie 'I am Legend', there was a supposed cure for cancer that turned out to make people into zombies.

In 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'..


**SPOILER ALERT**




.. the same drug that was to cure Alzheimer's Disease turns out to kill off humans.

Is 'draco' similar? (not zombies of course)

can you imagine if someone existed who had in them the ability to heal and then this species knowing the person then violating them to the point of sapping out of them the ability to heal the filth of this planet? I mean just look at humanity and this world. It's almost enough to make a person hurl at te thought of even .00000001% of you being healed of anything. you are such a vile undeserving species lol. What you do to others and yourselves makes you deserving of being cast into a biblical hell and smited with every disease known to man. You are the type to literraly take a person with an ablility to heal and do such a thing to them to heal your own worthless existences and I wouldn't be suprised if any drug that arrives that performs such miracles would be the result of you vile pigs doing such a thing.

This world needs to be destroyed and especially every single senior citizen piece of dog shit filth that currently exiss. Actually screw it the whole lot of you should be culled from existence. You are just the most disgusting undesrving species to ever exist. You torture and mutilate others for anything in this KELOWNA valley and try to pawn off lands like canada as caring places?

BURN IN HELL PIGS FILTH. Keep stabbing at me. 2 years and counting candian scum. I might have to go east in the end just to see if the lands there are as vile as the british columbian filth land.
