Dear Media Representatives,
DRACOs may be a cure for virtually all viral diseases; everything from the common cold to Zika to HSV to HIV.
Our DRACO approach and results have been called “visionary” by the White House (National Bioeconomy Blueprint, April 2012, p. 9), named one of the best inventions of the year by Time magazine (November 28, 2011, pp. 58, 78), and featured on the BBC Horizons TV program (2013).
Despite published results in the Journal of PLOS ONE in 2011 showing that DRACO was safe and effective against 15 viruses, research stalled due to a lack of funding.
In 2015 we launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo and raised $60K of our $100K goal. In 2016, we launched a second crowdfunding campaign and raised $39K. Our ultimate goal is $2M for research and optimizations over the next 4 years against clinically relevant viruses.
