Killing Cancer with the HIV virus
http://www.upworthy.com/long-shot-doctor...?g=2&c=bl3

This video and story amazed me. Science prevails, and my apologies if this was posted before but I didn't find it while reading back a bit and thought it was a very cool story showing where the fight against cancer may be heading.

RE: Killing Cancer with the HIV virus
Dr Carl June (and I assume his team) have engineered the HIV virus so it can't cause disease (I assume this means it wont develop into AIDS??), but it can program the immune system to attack tumor cells.
There was a little girl in the video, she'd tried everything, she was basically gonna die. They infected her immune system with this engineered HIV virus. It caused her to become extremely sick, but after a while she rapidly became better (4hours) and the HIV started killing all her tumor cells and basically destroyed her cancer.


If it's true (can't find anything to the contrary on google), then it is certainly amazing.
Goes to show too the amazing feet our body has to overcome things. With a little tweak we can train our immune system to kill cancer.



This is what I'm getting from it anyway.

RE: Killing Cancer with the HIV virus
Wow - that is amazing! Thanks for the skinny, Muffs.

I know HIV has the ability to mimic and replicate really fast. I didn't even know they'd mapped it's genome, which is what you'd have to do to tweak it like that to make it essentially, just the mechanism without HIV.

Wow, I knew they were discussing kind virus capability thing a few years ago but, there was such a controversy I thought the idea was just set aside. I'm going to look for more of this. Shy

I haven't watch this yet, but yes, Sloan-Kettering in NY is treating Leukemia and Lymphoma this way, (in principle, not with HIV). I'll find some links.

RE: Killing Cancer with the HIV virus
Yeah! I was able to see it on YT. OMG! That little girl was so cute!!

So, from what I'm understanding... they injected her entire system. Which means, any tests she has done... she will show up HIV positive.

Smile I can not say how incredible this is. There are no words.

This is probably what I read about this procedure last year.

They have been treating bladder cancer with modified tuberculosis for a long time - works well if the cancer is still very localized.
