Re: DRACO: Selectively inducing apoptosis, and killing, cells infected with the most severe viruses.

DRACO. Researchers at MIT discovered a method to kill – very specific – cells that are infected with some of the most severe viruses, like Hepatitis-C, HIV, Herpes, HPV, and more, and leaving uninfected cells untouched. All these viruses have, as an individual characteristic, double-stranded RNA (DSR). The MIT scientists built a cytotoxic T-cell by attaching 1) a receptor for double-stranded RNA, and 2) a DED (Death Effector Domain, apoptosis-inducing) part.
Achievement: One single such modified immune cell killed 1,000+ infected cells, and without touching normal cells.
For more details, references, etc., go to “Hormone Replacement” “Senior Health.”
Because this is such an important find - true anti-aging medicine - it is also discussed in the section on aging research and modified (similar to iPS) in my latest e-book. For a suggested illustration of DRACO mechanisms click on book cover at

A virus is an even smaller micro-organism that can only reproduce inside a host's living cell. It is very difficult to kill a virus. That's the reason why we should take healthy food to nourish our body. Exercises can also make a great impact to strengthen your immune system. Taking food supplements is beneficial too, check WE should not wait for the time for this virus to intrude our system.
