Common Cold Cure?

Stanford says yes

Stanford researchers may have discovered a cure for the common cold in both human and mice cells. It's not even as complicated as one might think: it's simply disabling a protein in cells that causes the replication of virus. These aren't even limited to colds. The potential here could impact everything from many different diseases if the protein can temporarily be disabled. 

An associate professor of microbiology, Jan Carette, says that the potential also extends to viruses associated with asthma, polio and other illnesses. These findings could be miraculous; think of all of the people who suffer from viruses every year. I'm fighting one right now! 

What do you think of these findings? Have you read any other cool medical breakthroughs this week? Share them in the chat!
