“Oh my Rebekah, I love her so,
even though when she was a baby she bit on my big toe.
I never held it against her, I love her just the same.
She is my girl, we have the same last name.”—My dad is off work today, so he’s walking around the house making up songs about stuff (i.e.: me, the termite inspection, the food in the refrigerator).
I did bite his toe when I was a baby. I didn’t have teeth then though, so we’re cool.
A non-disease causing virus kills human breast cancer cells in the laboratory, creating opportunities for potential new cancer therapies, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers who tested the virus on three different breast cancer types that represent the multiple stages of breast cancer development.
“We can see the virus is killing the cancer cells, but how is it doing it?” Samina Alam, Ph.D. said . “If we can determine which viral genes are being used, we may be able to introduce those genes into a therapeutic. If we can determine which pathways the virus is triggering, we can then screen new drugs that target those pathways. Or we may simply be able to use the virus itself.”
»This is exciting…getting to see these kinds of discoveries develop in my lifetime!
