    Hope it works as they think it will

    Another set of researchers to day announced a virus engineered to be a phage attacking microbes. This is intended to be an alternative to developing more new antibiotics (which the bugs can develop resistance to). The virus doesn't kill the microbes it stops them from moving and spreading. Because it doesn't kill it doesn't leave a few survivors that have mutated which will multiply and form an evolved strain with resistance. However if IBM are producing a generalised anti viral this might be negated. I do hope all these guys are actually talking to each other.

      Sounds promising, and it looks like IBM is trying to diversify. Anti-virals that actually work are the alchemist's stone of the future and worth a futune to the discoverers.

        Actually cures are less profitable than palliatives. Finding a cure for aids or diabetes will loose those manufacturers who produce the cocktail drugs that keep HIV sufferers alive and those that make insulin a fortune. Maybe a cynical thought but one wonders if that'd why those cures have not been found.
