Can the HIV Virus Offer Us a Cure For Childhood Leukemia?

Perhaps it can....

Gilr Beats Leukemia Via The HIV Virus

I hope this works long term.

I have a friend in medical school who is planning to be an oncologist. He swears the cure to cancer will be in the form of a virus.

The use of viral vectors, especially retroviral vectors and reverse transcriptase to alter genetic material in cells isn't new science. Its great to see amazing applications like this.

I heard something similar on Walton & Johnson this morning. A caller claimed they have had a cure since 2000 but the FDA didn't approve it.

This is the future guys.


Cancer cure IMO will likely be creating a treatment specific to a single patient's cancer administered using viral vectors.

This is how I Am Legend starts.

Also, the cure for AIDS is cash. Isn't Magic Johnson down to one AID?

Can't click on the link, but in the mid-2000s, a company in the NE used a modified version of the HIV virus to attack cancer cells, thus curing the patient. I'm sure the linked article is a similar case, but I never heard of a follow up to see how development was going.
