Question: how is the search for a cure going?
anon answered on 12 Jun 2017:
There are cures for some infectious diseases – for example antibiotics like penicillin – but not for others. I doubt there will ever be a single cure for the wide range of infections.
There are infectious worms (hookworm), proteins (which caused mad cow disease), bacteria (which cause tuberculosis), and viruses (which cause influenza and HIV/AIDS). There are even infectious fungi.
