Killing cancer with HIV.

Nice film. I've not looked these guys up yet (can do if you like) but it's real. I've posted above a couple of times I think about immunotherapy in cancer treatment (and natural protection mechanisms as well).

A word on the HIV aspect: this is stuff I use all the time, and doesn't mean that HIV is exerting any effect against cancer (if it did, Kaposi wouldn't be famous); instead it relates to us leveraging our understanding of HIV's lifecycle to make delivery methods for genes and thus controllably fucking with gene expression, a gene or two at a time. Happy to elaborate, but making fake-ass replication-incompetent HIV is what all the cool kids are doing :rambo: Here, they're using it to make T cells react against tumours, which is a pretty violent thing to engineer... hence cytokine storms and life-threatening fever.

Not to be fucked with, this stuff. Look up Northwick Park.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Prevention being better than cure, I did like this anti smoking ad, slogan: "To smoke is to be tobacco's slave".

Mrs O going for a scan today on an 'unidentified mass'. Eeek. Ironically (well, not that ironically) this only came about because her colitis seems to have moved on to Crohn's lately and she's been having other scans to try and sort the extent of that out.

Thank fuck for the Crohn's, then :?

Cheers :thumbl:

Had to have a colonoscopy myself a couple of years back and I asked the consultant for an mpeg so I could lob it on Facebook. She wasn't impressed.

All the best. Had a similar thing with mrs OEE a bit back and it turned out ok. She really appreciated the fact that I was totally attentive but did NOT fuss and keep asking if she was ok. Tip!

Hope it's all OK Eric.

On a side note, Blackwhite, that picture screamed out to me "Cock-smoker".

Speaking as your amateur psychologist, when do you first remember having these feelings?

Results next week when the consultant has had a proper look, but the radiographer said, "It's probably nothing". I'd like to think she'd not have said that if it was in doubt. Tentative 'phew' for now. Cheers for all the kind thoughts folks.

:thumbl: Sounds reassuring. Radiographers are pretty smart people on the whole and they know what the stakes are, they don't use words lightly.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Don't make any plans between 19:00 tomorrow and 06:00 Sunday. My computer predicts you will be busy vogueing.
