US researchers have developed a single drug with the potential to treat almost all viral infection types, including common colds and influenza.

Pioneered at MIT, the drug could change current viral treatment methods and it’s already been proven as an effective nullifier of 15 different virus types.

Penicillin and other antibiotics are a standard bacterial treatment approach but have little effect in tackling common colds, flu and other viruses. The new MIT drug, named DRACO (Double-stranded RNA-Activated Caspase Oligomerizer) targets infected cells and kills them, specifically working only on one particular RNA found in them.

This double-stranded RNA is essentially like a tag, attached to signify the presence of infection.


“DRACO has the potential to revolutionize the treatment and prevention of virtually all viral diseases, including everything from the common cold to Ebola”, Doctor Todd Rider, who established and leads the MIT DRACO drug research team, explained.
