Curing the common cold

Jonathan Thomason Merchant’s Quay, Salford Quays, M50 3XQ
Giving penicillin stimulates the antibody to new cell types in the body, so cures the common cold! Bacteria are learning to make dummy receptors for penicillin, so we need to give more of it, by drip!
When somebody is getting better from a cold, the active antibody (a HAV) is in the blood stream. We can sample for it, and make pills that will cure each year’s virus!
We will need a different course of pills every year!
A cold holds off causing cell damage for three days, so the body deletes all records of the antibodies to the common cold.
If we give pills on day 0, we will be better from the cold by day 1.
We will need a medicine chest full of the antibodies, and different ones every year!
