MIT Develops New Drug That Could Cure Nearly Any Viral Infection

 

Researchers at MIT’s Lincoln Lab have developed technology that may someday cure the common cold, influenza and other ailments.

Cambridge, MA — 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).

His mission is to bring awareness to Team Red, White & Blue, a non-profit organization committed to wounded veterans and their families.

DiBernardo began running when he joined the military in 2002. However, he soon took running to a new level. Each time he enters an event, DiBernardo wears a unique piece of racing equipment, a gas mask. What started as a lighthearted approach to fitness turned into a passion. DiBernardo has participated in several military challenge competitions, including Fort Campbell’s ‘Toughest Air Assault Competition’ in 2007. Now he has set his sights to Go Commando and he’s bringing the mask with him.

Fort Campbell Soldier Marc DiBernardo will attempt a second world record at the Go Commando Half Marathon Saturday, October 15th.
