Originally posted by twhiteheadI also was wondering about that. I know that small segments of whatever protein molecules are made in the cell are displayed on the outer membrane so that if any of them come from viral proteins or are from a cancer cell mutated gene then killer T cells can detect them and destroy the cells. This is confirmed at;
Does RNA show on the outside of cells? It doesn't make sense.
Originally posted by humyThose three patients, presumably humans, had advanced cancer and probably fell into the catagory of last chance help, try anything at the last stages of their cancers and they most likely had to sign a death waver of some kind. The imply the cancers were reduced but they did not say by how much and if the patients lived longer with the treatment than without.
"...Pieces of cancer's genetic RNA code were placed into nanoparticles of fat and injected into three patients in the advanced stage of the disease. In response, the immune systems produced cells designed to specifically attack the disease...."
But then, unless I am missing something here, very strangely and critically it doesn't make clear what ...[text shortened]... actly? Very strange. I hope the reason why the link doesn't say is because all 3 did very badly!
