MIT Lincoln Laboratory researchers develop a technique to cure a broad range of virus

Here's your daily dose of science.

http://www.ll.mit.edu/news/DRACO.html

Dr. Rider says that although more extensive testing is needed, "DRACO has the potential to revolutionize the treatment and prevention of virtually all viral diseases, including everything from the common cold to Ebola."


Cool eh? Wonder how exactly it works...

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

Cell suicide?

Fuck yeah, band name.


For a band that'll get no hits. You need something catchy. Like Blasphemmogar.

As a result, DRACO should be effective against virtually all viruses, rapidly terminating a viral infection while minimizing the impact on the patient.

should be


Humm, it should be effective, but they are not sure...I love the assumptions scientists make, oh it'll work....at least it should in theory...expect zombies afocklypse.

^ Yeah, bet you'll be hatin' on science watching your tv, using the internet, using cooking appliances, getting medicine to make you better. Oh, wait... I really hope your anti-science bullshit bites you in the ass.


On topic: Draco?

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

I'd be far more suspicious if they said 'This will definitely work no matter what'.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

Wasn't penicillin supposed to eradicate all disease? And yet, here we are like 100 years later going, "Dammit, Grandma got aids!"

Lincoln Labs is the next town over from me O.o. I so want to co-op there...

Maybe they should actually confirm that it actually does what they think it will do before screaming to the world that they found the cure to virtually every virus in the world, in one medicine, which I highly doubt they did. Heck, the flu vaccines are practically useless, everyone I know that gets them still gets the flu, the 2 week puking your guts out flu.

They've tested it, and it works. They just need to test it more to make sure it always does, and you know, they don't create zombies or something.

Flu vaccines aren't useless unless you have a really shit immune system that can't kill a half dead virus. With 2 weeks of throwing up I'd assume they did. And that v.

They only protect against a certain strain of the virus which is why they have a new one every year. But even if you get a vaccine every year, it's not enough to protect against all the other mutations of the virus.

You know what you could do? Stop picking and choosing and stop selectively reading.

Well shit, what about that, they're not doing anything you're saying and all you had to do was read either the OP or the article properly. You've excelled once again in making yourself look like a jackass.

Except half the people here get sick for a week after getting one. Either half the people have shit immune systems or there's something odd about the vaccine. Either one is a cause for concern. Also, it's fairly well known in the medical field that we've become such a pill popping/shot happy society, and that is actually causing problems according to some doctors.

And this is exactly why they are useless, there are so many different strains of the same virus, that making a vaccine that only affects one strain is like shooting a pistol in the dark at a moving target that's 50 yards away that's the size of a quarter.

I've never had the flu vaccine, and I've never had the flu, and I'll never get the flu vaccine, because it's a sham.

The shot doesn't cover all possible strains of the flu, just the most prevalent ones. I would not be surprised if most people had shit immune systems with the horrible diets most people have now.

Over prescription of antibiotics for stuff that doesn't need it = mutations in bacteria causing immunity to antibiotics.

^I've never gotten one either, only had the flu once. Felt like shit for a day, not too bad. But discouraging people to is well... stupid. It could just save your life, ya know?

As for your other concerns, this is a broad spectrum drug, dawling. This isn't a "flu vaccine" either.

This will somehow cause the end of the world. Like maybe because of it a supervirus comes out and ****s shit up or something.

Not quite, considering that there are factors that allow the doctors to make an educated guess on which strain will be the problem.
