The experimental treatment seems to have extended survival in a small group of patients with glioblastoma who faced a grim prognosis because standard treatments had failed, Duke University researchers say. "I've been doing this for 50 years and I've never seen results like this," says Dr. Darell Bigner, the director emeritus of the The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at the Duke Cancer Institute, who is helping develop the treatment.


More proof that like cures like.

Thanks to trump for the recent changes in the policies surrounding experimental treatments.



The scientists removed one of the virus's genes to prevent it from causing polio and replaced that gene with one from a harmless virus known as a rhinovirus, which ordinarily causes the common cold. The engineered virus was then infused directly into tumors in patients' brains with a tube inserted through a hole in the skull. The modified virus retains the ability to infect and kill brain tumor cells, and also appears to trigger the patient's own immune system cells to attack the tumors, the researchers say.


Sure people will disagree that polio removes brain tumors and the measles cures cancer but proof is proof.


AHHHHHHHH love me some homeopathy

I DARE YOU to read the ACTUAL study and see if this is the mechanism by which this vaccine worked.

Like vs. Like is the basest of medical pseudoscience.




AHHHHHHHH love me some homeopathy



This wasn't homeopathy.


EDIT:

This is an absolutely great story that you are muddying with pseudoscience bull#.

What?

I'm not trying to win a race.

Lying to people about what this represents isn't beating anyone to the punch.

Really you want to go all 3rd grade again.

It is all in the op.

If you do not want to see it in the op then just view the video in the second post.

It covers your concerns.

What is you point in rehashing an old argument.

I presented both sides and you skipped over the content and choose to go straight into adversary mode.

Give it a rest and how bout not drag down every thread with the moinor debate and let's agree that trump did good by allowing people to try different treatments and let's just high five the cure no matter how we got it?

Or does that go against your attempts to be childish at every turn.

The divisiveness and seek common ground.

For anyone reading this thread.

There's no common ground here.

Homeopathy is BS.

Your assertion that vaccines are homeopathy is absurd and a LIE.

It isn't a MINOR POINT that you are deliberately misleading people.

You are super triggered.


You're lying to people.




Take a deep breath.

Funny how that works


What breathing? Do you need a crash course on how that works?

and straight in from left field....

you are not making sense in relation to the op at all

never said anything close to what you imply

you triggered to bro.?

reading and comprehension is a friend to both of you.


Yes you did:

This is exactly what you're implying.

You're full of it and continue to be. Why are you deliberately trying to mislead people?

For "like to kill like", and the mention of homeopathy, would imply that the cancer in the article is being caused by polio, as they are not injecting glioblastoma cells into the brain.

Sorry if i was mistaken.

Wow... where do I start.... how are a genetically modified poliovirus and cancer alike?????



Thanks to trump for the recent changes in the policies surrounding experimental treatments.


Actually the trials started in 2012, with Obama.

No proof for either of your ridiculous statements. Polio paralyzes and kills. Measles maims and kills.

This study is great, and I cannot wait for phase II, but it's not evidence for the modified virus curing cancer.

THE ACTUAL STUDY.

That is not at all what is happening.

No one is misleading you or even attempting to.

You are not being rational at all.

You will never seek any other perspective unless you try.

Like cures like

they are both bad for you

like cures like is the basis for many cures.

ever heard of measles curing cancer

yes the research has been ongoing but indeed the recent changes by potus have led the way for many treatments not available in the past and very possible we would never gotton to stage two without the boost of legality.

Except I quoted you and responded to exactly that several times.




No one is misleading you or even attempting to.


That's because I have a vaccine against charlatans that spread BS like homeopathy.




You will never seek any other perspective unless you try.


Homeopathy has been proven ineffective, and the fact that people keep pushing this crap as though it were for all manner of ailments (as well as LYING about what vaccines are...This one is for you specifically), is unethical.

There is no scientific case for homeopathy: the debate is over
