Will There Ever be a Cure for the Common Cold?

Well, one of the reasons why the common cold is not being cured—is it’s so difficult to attack as it’s not a single target and so broad spectrum antibiotics are used.

Most of the broad spectrum antibiotics work by inhibiting key proteins that bacteria need to reproduce or make their protective cell walls and they do not harm human cells.

Developing highly effective, broad-spectrum antiviral agents is the major objective of curing common cold.

Watch the video above to learn more about current research and if any of the developed broad spectrum antiviral agents were successful!
