The newest thing in cancer research is using a virus to fight cancer. Sounds strange but it's very promising. Nowadays you can pretty much build a virus from scratch and design it so it only attacks cancer cells. They already tested it in humans and it stopped cancer growth in almost 80% of the patients. Of course there were under 10 test subjects and in the other 20% the virus actually reproduced in healthy cells so we're not quite there yet.

All I know is it scares the shit out of me!....And virus that targets specific things???? Thats the beginning of Fox Die!!
