According to MIT News researchers at Lincoln Laboratory’s Chemical, Biological and Nanoscale Technologies Group have invented a new drug that can identify cells infected by any type of virus and then kill them, thereby terminating the infection.
The drug has proven effective against dozens of viruses, including the common cold, influenza, the polio virus, and dengue fever. Senior team member Tod Rider says this could be a game changer:
“Because the technology is so broad-spectrum, it could potentially also be used to combat outbreaks of new and unknown viruses, such as the 2003 SARS outbreak. In theory it should work against all viruses.”
Because many experts theorize that the next great zombie plague will be caused by a virus, this new drug treatment could prevent global catastrophe when the dead rise. More research is needed, but initial results are promising to say the least.
