12 Nov 2014 – A new lead in the fight against dengue fever
The Discovering Dengue Drugs research team has published a paper describing a new drug candidate that was discovered with the help of World Community Grid volunteers. This drug candidate has no known adverse risks, and seems to be an attractive candidate for preclinical studies. A new antiviral treatment would be hugely beneficial for the roughly half of the world’s population that is at risk of contracting dengue or other related viruses such as hepatitis C, yellow fever and West Nile.
