+ - New Drug Targets Flu's Achilles Heel->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The ABC's Dani Cooper writes, 'Australian researchers have helped develop a new class of influenza drug that tricks the virus by using its own mechanism of infection. So far, the drug has been used to successfully treat mice infected with lethal strains of influenza — including resistant strains of the virus. The international team of researchers, which includes Australian scientists from CSIRO, believe the virus may not be able to develop resistance to this new type of drug because it stops a process that is common to all strains of flu. Their discovery is reported in today's Science journal.'"
