Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Identifying the mechanism for a new class of antiviral drugs could hasten their approval

(Penn State) New research shows that a new class of antiviral drugs works by causing the virus' replication machinery to pause and backtrack, preventing the virus from efficiently replicating. This discovery, made possible by a high-throughput experimental technique called 'magnetic tweezers,' could speed the development and approval of related antiviral drugs.
