Enders Sees Cold Remedy in 5 Years
John F. Enders, associate professor of Bacteriology and Immunology, predicted yesterday that the common cold would be defeated within five years. He concurred with the statement made by Dr. John S. Dingle of Western Reserve University at a Saturday meeting of the Common Cold Foundation.
Enders, a co-winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1954, felt that it would not be possible to immunize people against the common cold, as one would immunize against other virus-caused diseases. He believed, however, that a chemical drug or agent would be found for the treatment of colds.
