The Real Solution to Viruses

All of you have probably heard about the unprecedented efforts being undertaken by Big Pharma and governments to create an unprecedented vaccine to combat the SARS-CoV-2 virus.  Tens of billions of dollars are being spent on vaccine research with two goals in mind:


1.) Putting an end to the potentially never-ending lockdown cycle.


2.) Maximizing profits for Big Pharma.

Oh yes, and saving humanity.


Oddly, enough, given the pandemic panic, it is interesting to note that there may have been a cure for most viral infections based on research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology back in 2011.


Here is the article that appeared on MIT News on August 10, 2011:



Back in 2011, a team of researchers at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory had designed technology that would be capable of defeating viruses that cause the common cold, influenza and other more deadly diseases like Ebola.  The researchers responsible for the study found that their drug was effective against 18 viruses including the following:


1.) common cold rhinoviruses


2.) H1N1 influenza


3.) a stomach virus


4.) polio viruses


5.) dengue fever


6.) several types of hemorrhagic fever


Here is an entire list of DRACO's effectiveness against a broad spectrum of viruses:


As background, when viruses take over a cell, it takes control of the cell with the purpose of replicating itself.  As part of the process, the virus creates long strings of double-stranded RNA which is not found in human or other animal cells.  Human cells protect themselves by using proteins that latch onto the double-stranded RNA, preventing the virus from replicating itself.


The senior staff scientist at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory Chemical, Biological and Nanoscale Technology group, Todd Rider, drew inspiration for this therapeutic ages dubbed DRACO (Double-stranded RNA Activated Caspase Oligomerizers) from the defense systems used by living cells.  The drug targets a type of RNA that is produced only in cells that have been infected by viruses meaning that it should be effective against all viruses.  This means that it could be capable of combating outbreaks of the SARS-CoV-1 virus that caused the 2003 SARS outbreak and the current SARS-CoV-2 virus.  


Here is a quote from the article:


"Rider had the idea to combine a dsRNA-binding protein with another protein that induces cells to undergo apoptosis (programmed cell suicide) — launched, for example, when a cell determines it is en route to becoming cancerous. Therefore, when one end of the DRACO binds to dsRNA, it signals the other end of the DRACO to initiate cell suicide.


Each DRACO also includes a “delivery tag,” taken from naturally occurring proteins, that allows it to cross cell membranes and enter any human or animal cell. However, if no dsRNA is present, DRACO leaves the cell unharmed.


Most of the tests reported in this study were done in human and animal cells cultured in the lab, but the researchers also tested DRACO in mice infected with the H1N1 influenza virus. When mice were treated with DRACO, they were completely cured of the infection. The tests also showed that DRACO itself is not toxic to mice."


Here is a graphic showing how DRACO Antiviral Therapeutics work:



This invention was so novel that it was named one of the best inventions of the year by Time Magazine (November 28, 2011 "Invention issue") and was mentioned in the White House's Bioeconomic Blueprint in April 2012 as shown here:

You may ask yourself why, in the COVID-19 era, is this treatment not getting wider attention? Unfortunately, Dr. Rider has had great difficulties raising funds for his potentially life-saving invention as you can see from this video which was produced as part of his Indiegogo campaign:


...and here on the Rider Institute website:


...even though the original research was funded by Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the New England Regional Center of Excellence for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases, with previous funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and Director of Defense Research & Engineering (now the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering).


Given that DRACO has the potential to save humanity from a very wide variety of viruses, not just a single coronavirus like SARS-CoV-2, it is rather interesting to see how this ground-breaking technology has pretty much been left on the shelf.  But, then again, how could Big Pharma profit if there is a single cure-all for many of the mainstream viruses that impact human lives, particularly since it was not invented in their laboratories?



  1. Most likely explanation is that problems cropped up suggesting toxicities or side effects that were not apparent when the initial article was published. Re the covid vaccine published prices are in the $3-15 range, so not much room for "huuge profits" or room for legal costs if an unanticipated problem crops up in 6-12 months.


      This gives a different explanation. No effort was maintained to protect intellectual property, so Pharma does not have an interest in a technology that is in the public domain and therefore cannot be monopolized.

    2. 1):where is this $3-15 cost coming from?2)If this were developed and very effective,one Huge tool to control population growth is taken away.Disease and war as well as good oldfashioned starvation=a somewhat livable planet vs. ?9billion mostly malnourished,scrambling for resources humans.Look how people hoarded,stole,and fought for freaking t.p. Like it was life or death! :-)

    3. Also,there is the destruction of ????jobs as people just go to local clinic,get the drug and done.No back and forth for this drug or therapy.Researchers fired.Lots of unhappy militarytypes who cant use their bioweapons against spies,ambassadors,enemy countries.Also the fact that somewhat sick,weak citizens are easier to control and not as prone to uprising.

  2. Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at John Hopkin’s University analysed the effect of Covid-19 on US deaths using data from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    She looked at total deaths per age group and per cause of death. She expected to find that the percentage of deaths among the elderly had increased because of Covid, but that was not the case. The percentage of deaths for all age groups had remained the same before and after Covid. Not only did she find that Covid had no effect on the percentage of deaths of older people, but it had also not increased the total number of deaths. She concluded that Covid-19 had relatively no effect on the deaths in the United States, i.e. no excess deaths.

    Briand then looked at deaths per causes from 2014 to 2020. She then looked at the weekly data for 2020 and she noticed that there was a significant decrease in deaths due to diseases other than Covid, such as heart disease, respiratory diseases, flu and pneumonia. She found that the total decreases in deaths due to all other causes almost equals the number of Covid deaths. Her article was published on November 22, in the Johns Hopkins University Newsletter, it was later removed.

    In the Southern Hemisphere where winter has ended scientists have noted that the flu has almost disappeared. At the end of August 2019, there were about 61,000 flu cases confirmed by laboratory. This year at the end of August, only 107 cases.

    1. Thank you for your input. I believe that other nations are finding the same thing, the United Kingdom in particular. For those of you who wish to read her fascinating analysis, here is a link to a .pdf of the paper:

    2. Flutracker says same thing even in n. Hemispherebecause everything iscalled covd.Health officials from IL. And CO have been caught saying as much.Its documented on video.Contact national funeral association or various funeralhomes and ask if there is a marked increase in funerals from last year.M.E.s and coroners have been caught many times lying,coveringup,deleting,losing data;they are subject to politics!J.Hopkins has Long history of unethical human experiments,lies,defense cooperation,corporatized corruption.Why do you think they so early did thecovdTrackingProject?! :-)

  3. Thank you for the link. I just noticed that I forgot to put in my comment that those flu statistics of 61,000 cases in 2019 and 107 this year are cases in Australia.
