Quote of the day

People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

Is a cure for the common cold on the way?

Todd Rider, an MIT research scientist, is developing an antiviral drug called Draco that has proven successful in lab trials with human tissue and mice against all 15 viruses it has used for. .

 

These include the common cold, H1N1 or swine flu, a polio virus, dengue fever and the notorious and fatal Ebola virus.

 

Rider “wired together” two natural proteins — one that detects virus entry, and another that acts as a suicide switch that kills the infected cell.

 

A broad-based antiviral could obliterate the threat of a global pandemic and mitigate health scares such as that caused by the Sars virus in 2002 or bird flu in 2009.

Pouvoir habiter à proximité de son lieux de travail sera toujours mieux que les transports rapides qui finissent toujours par se révéler des usines à gaz. J’ai pu constater à Strasbourg comme d’autres grandes villes que les champs agricoles jouxtant les villes sont souvent du mais. N’y aurait il pas là une attente des agriculteurs d’un POS favorable ( plan d’occupation des sols) et de par leurs actions , faire monter les prix de l&rs;uoqimmobilier. Reply
