(NaturalNews) Researchers from the Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England, have made a fascinating new discovery about the way the body's immune system fights off infections. Contrary to popular belief within mainstream medicine, the body's natural antibodies are capable of fighting off a virus and killing it, even after the infection has entered cells -- and this phenomenon occurs naturally without the need for drug interventions.

Published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the study ransacks conventional thinking about viruses, proving that they really can be cured after taking hold within a person's system. Researchers observed that adaptable proteins within the body seek out viruses, attach to them, and enter cells alongside them, where other antibodies then identify and destroy them while keeping the cells intact.

The tripartite motif-containing 21 (TRIM21) protein in particular takes note of viruses when they enter cells and, because the antibodies are attached to these viruses, TRIM21 knows to eliminate them. And while conventional thinking up until this point has assumed that this process is not possible, the medical community will now have to change its ideology concerning prevention and treatment options for infections.

Interestingly, TRIM21 proteins do not even require outside help from other, outside immune cells in order to perform the vital task of eliminating invading viruses; they are capable of doing it entirely on their own.

Previously, scientists had assumed that in order to attack and kill a virus, it was necessary to attack and destroy the infected cells as well. But the new research confirms that it is not necessary to destroy the infected cells along with the virus in order to get rid of it.
