We're nearing the heart of cold and flu season, but British researchers may be close to unlocking the cure we've all been waiting for.
Scientists at Imperial College London have successfully created a genetically-engineered mouse; one that can catch a cold like a human or chimp. Britain's Medical Research Council hopes this research will open up a pathway to treat the common cold. The scientists in charge of the project say could provide hope for more fatal illnesses, too, such as acute attacks of asthma and chronic bronchitis.
