Hopefully this research will be used in personalized medicine and pharmacogenetics (first post).

Now that's just cool. I hope they continue to develop that, and can make it into a workable medication for Cancer patients. It'll be nice to be able to kill one of the most notorious killers of the past 50 years.

If they can get this process working reliably and without problems it must surely be a matter of time before they can use a similar process to destroy other infections as well from something like the common cold to AIDS? and if they could get the body to defend it's self rather than rely on things like chemotherapy it would surely save the patients from a lot af side affects aswell? along with cost savings from having to treat those side affects?

One thing, how can this target only cancer cells and not healthy cells?
Any way I bet this is more promising than Alex Chiu's alegations of the cancer cure pill
