Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have discovered that the flu virus has an internal clock of sorts which allows it to maximize the havoc it unleashes on the human body. The virus knows that it has a specific amount of time to multiply before leaving a human cell. If it leaves the cell too soon the virus is too weak and if it leaves the cell too late the immune system of it's host will detect it. Using this information researchers can now focus on developing new treatments which disrupt the internal clock of the virus. For more information on this study you can read about it in Newswise.
