(Best Syndication News) A University of Georgia research team is gaining headway in their attempt to understand the constantly evolving influenza virus. Ralph Tripp, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and Chair of Animal Health Vaccine Development in the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, says that interfering with the way viruses replicate may provide a way to treat the flu.

Viruses replicate by attaching themselves to a host cell, and turning that cell into a factory. Tripp says that influenza binds with sugars found on the surface of host cells in the lung and respiratory tract. The virus then injects its genetic information into the nucleus of the cell and virus replication begins.
