Submission + - Revolutionary antiviral from MIT Lincoln Lab (mit.edu)

rvalles writes: "MIT Lincoln Laboratory researchers developed and tested a revolutionary antiviral which activates apoptosis in cells infected with viral dsRNA. It's called DRACO (Double-stranded RNA [dsRNA] Activated Caspase Oligomerizer) and it's been developed as part of a program called PANACEA (Pharmacological Augmentation of Nonspecific Anti-pathogen Cellular Enzymes and Activities). It should be effective against almost if not all viruses, so it's likely going to entirely change the way we deal with viral infection."
