    Disabled AIDS virus kills leukemia cells...
    :clap2:

    December 11, 2012 - An experimental leukemia therapy appears to have successfully eliminated the lethal blood cancer in some patients. The treatment, which involves a disabled form of the virus that causes AIDS, revs-up immune system cells that then specifically target the malignant cells.

    What if they contract Aids and die from that? :eusa_shifty:


    I hate it when folks use the wrath of God to explain away bad earthly issues.
