    Default South Indian Frog Oozes Molecule That Inexplicably Decimates Flu Viruses

    https://science.slashdot.org/story/1...es-flu-viruses

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica:

    From the slimy backs of a South Indian frog comes a new way to blast influenza viruses. A compound in the frog's mucus -- long known to have germ-killing properties -- can latch onto flu virus particles and cause them to burst apart, researchers report in Immunity. The peptide is a potent and precise killer, able to demolish a whole class of flu viruses while leaving other viruses and cells unharmed. But scientists don't know exactly how it pulls off the viral eviscerations. No other antiviral peptide of its ilk seems to work the same way. The study authors, led by researchers at Emory University, note that the peptide appears uniquely nontoxic -- something that can't be said of many other frog-based compounds. Thus, the peptide on its own holds promise of being a potential therapy someday. But simply figuring out how it works could move researchers closer to a vaccine or therapy that could take out all flus, ditching the need for yearly vaccinations for each season's flavor of flu.
    Betcha this is the last we ever hear anything happening. Why? Too much money to be made in over the counter medicine that really only treats the symptoms. Got a cold? Sorry pal, here, why dont you take this drug that dries you out, makes you sleep heavy, and overall, just gets you really really high! Oh, and give us lots and lots of money!

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintian an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    And, of course, there is this....

    ditching the need for yearly vaccinations for each season's flavor of flu.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    To be fair, the vast majority of these stories are pretty much fantasy, and will never result in a viable human therapy or drug.

    But yes, when something does work, expect the games to be played, as was the case with the very effective cure for Hep-C, which was delayed for a long time due to pharma battling for advantage while people died.
