Soldiers on future battlefields could be protected against germ warfare agents by having blood transfusions with genetically modified cells that can neutralise deadly biological toxins, scientists have found.
Human red blood cells have been genetically engineered to produce protein antidotes and other antibody-based medicines that can be safely delivered to any part of the body, researchers said.
A study has shown that the technique works well when carried out on laboratory mice, and that modified human red blood cells stay circulating in the body for up to four months, giving transfusion patients long-term protection, they said.

Hmmm,this could get darkside fast daas...
Tweak the genetic mods to generate adrenaline in the blood,or to deliver some kind of "rage" signal in the brain.
Turn off the soldiers emotions while engaged in combat with another tweak.
Memory wipe after combat with another tweak.
Gene modded human killers,the future of warfare-sounds like some kind of dystopian sci fi future is what we are looking at.
