    This could be the biggest discovery in medicine since the development of penicillin. Most impressively, LJ001 successfully cured mice of ebola, one of the most lethal diseases known to man, without any side effects.

    The downside? It only works on lipid-enveloped viruses.

    The UCLA Aids Institute has already applied for a patent on the compound.

    Don't get too carried away. Viruses have a way of willing themselves past these temporary obstacles. Enjoy it while it lasts, but it's not permanent

    Many bacteria have developed resistance to penicillin, but that doesn't make the discovery any less significant.

    You're not too bright, You missed what is the most pertinent part of the hyped up story: "...may potentially cure a wide swath of disease ranging from influenza to AIDS to Ebola"

    May. Potentially.

    I've seen this kind of nonsense rear it's head in headlines since the days... with a local hospital and with a study sponsored by and monitored by the State of MA., and Harvard University.

    influenza...AIDS...Ebola: I don't know enough about influenza... and Ebola---all die of it....HIV/AIDS. It resides in the cells of people infected with it. It crosses the blood brain barrier. I don't see how this 'may' potentially' rises to serious consideration of a discussion of a cure for HIV/AIDS.

    we shall see, but if the history of 'discoveries' of anti-viral therapy and cures is to be taken into consideration---I'd bet against the hype and the press releases

    This is so cool. Great solutions sometimes are pretty simple like this.

    Pretty much puts paid to a host of problems.


    And I have to admit, I thought this kind of thing was impossible.

    Be cool to see where it goes in three or four years though

    I wish I could come back in a couple hundred years and see the medical breakthroughs. I assume at that point people could live forever if they were willing to their body and its part replaced often enough

    In layman's terms, that means what, as far as application and effectiveness are concerned?
