A new drug, dubbed "DRACO," or double-stranded RNA Activated Caspase Oligomerizers, works by targeting a type of RNA produced only in virus-infected cells.

Most bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics such as penicillin, discovered decades ago.

However, such drugs are useless against viral infections, including influenza, the common cold, and deadly hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola, according to an MIT news release.

Scientists Demonstrate that Astrocytes from Both Familial and Sporadic ALS Are Toxic to Motor Neurons Scientists have generated nerve cells from post-mortem human tissue to demonstrate that astrocytes are toxic to neurons in both familial and sporadic forms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Funded in part by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the Ohio State University-led team generated astrocytes from post mortem spinal cord neural progenitor cells (NPCs). Their resulting studies indicated that a similar mechanism of astrocyte-mediated toxicity leads to motor neuron death occurs in both FALS and SALS.
