Influence: a December peak

It's got the flu. But in December will be even more strong current. Meanwhile in the United States is studying a medication able to defeat it.

Despite temperatures still summer in much of the Peninsula, there are over 60,000 Italians in bed with dellinfluenza symptoms. It seems to be the fault of the temperature of these last few days that have favoured the development of all virus related allinfluenza. The symptoms? Those ever. Tiredness, fever and colds. Nothing new. And always the same: a symptomatic medication, rest and diet rich in vitamins. For now, however, it seems that the number of patients is not expected to grow. As they say the same virologists, the real influence should arrive. And the deal in December. At that time the Italians who fall ill may be more than twice. Meanwhile come good news for the cure dellinfluenza from United States Damer.

A team of scientists of the Southwestern Medical Center at the University of Texas, seems to have discovered a compound for the treatment of viruses dellinfluenza. And not just a classical influence (there are more than 270 types), but also influences mortals such as Spanish. The substance can increase levels of human antiviral protein, alienating the virus. If this compound could change depending on the strain of influenza which should treat, you would have found a kind of magic potion. In recent experiments, scientists Texans have got to ensure the effectiveness of at least 3 strains of influenza, among the most dangerous: 2 strain of smallpox and 1 strain which kills animals. probably it will take at least another 10 years before that the compound can be transformed into a real drug. According to virologists the problem will find various mutations of the drug as are those of the virus. We cannot make other that to wish good luck to this team of scientists.
