The search for a "cure for the common cold" resembles in some ways a late
20th-century quest for the holy grail, and although new and remarkable
medical discoveries are reported almost daily, the skeptics reiterate
that medicine still cannot cure the most frequent infectious disease,
the common cold. It is not that accomplished scientists have not tried,
and the literature is filled with accounts of these attempts. But the
goal has evaded researchers for years, and it is in this context that
we should evaluate the report of Turner and colleagues1 in
this issue of THE JOURNAL.
