Submission + - A cure for the common cold? (

locater16 writes: Perhaps the most important medical break through since penicillin. Researchers at MIT have apparently created a new type of medicine that, in initial lab tests, acts as a general anti viral and has already proven successful at curing cells infected with the common cold, while proving nontoxic to uninfected cells. Of course the mean time from a discovery in the lab till a product is on the market is currently 13 years. So don't skip those yearly flu vaccinations quite yet.
