MidnightSkulker: Science reporting goes like this:Paper: "We found a small but measurable positive effect of substance X in this extremely narrow animal model."Media: "CANCER CURE FOUND"
Random Discord: Exactly how many times is this going to be repeated?
Vodka Zombie: Cancer will never be cured. In America, cancer is just too much of a welcome cash cow for just about every facet of the American health care/health insurance industry, and finding an easy cure would cost them billions in profits. It's much better for them to convince you that you're going to die and subject you to an obscenely expensive regimen of treatments and medications and surgeries that can bleed every last penny from your bank accounts.
Feepit: Is this the same study posted to Fark several days ago?*checks link*Yup! Same exact one.
Archae hippy: Killing cancer cells is easy (see the first few posts, or boobies or what ever).Blocking HUMAN CD47 makes implanted HUMAN tumors more susceptible to the mouse immune system. Normal MOUSE cells are also more susceptible, but much less so. I hate cancer, but this extremely preliminary.
I_Am_Weasel: Sgygus: Cyanide?No. Apparently it's silica gel.FTA:The drug works by blocking a protein called CD47 that is essentially a "do not eat" signal to the body's immune system
