A way to cure the common cold

By 9th November 2017Semi-finalists

It is still one of the most common diseases in the world; the common cold. We spend nearly five years of our lives coughing and having clogged noses. Most remedies are only mitigating the symptoms of the disease. But Panoxyvir from Italy has found a revolutionary way to really cure the disease.

“Our spray is based on oxy-teroles, molecules produced by our body that have the ability to modify cell membrane composition,” says Lembo. “Their action, in short, is directed toward our cells, which makes it very unlikely to develop cold-strain virus strains that can withstand the drug,” said General Pathologist Guiseppe Poli, managing director of Panoxyvir.

The spray could become the first drug to cure colds and prevent the onset of symptoms and the transmission of the disease. So no more handkerchiefs in your pockets.

Guiseppe Poli will be on stage to explain the workings of Panoxyvir during the semi-finals of Ideas from Europe in Tallinn on November 22.
