According to the researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the drug, known by its acronym as DARCO, will be able to treat polio, flu, HIV, rabies, German measles, dengue fever, stomach bug and human rhinoviruses.

In the report, published in the journal PLoS One, the researchers wrote that the drug works by targeting a specific type of RNA that is produced only in cells that have been infected by a virus and said that it should be able to treat any disease that has been caused by viral infection.
