    If someone comes up with a treatment to get rid of melanosomes, it will undoubtedly have some unpleasant effects besides turning me into an albino. But compared to melanoma?

    “Dr. June said his team hopes to use T-cells against solid tumors, including some that are very hard to treat, like mesothelioma and ovarian and pancreatic cancer. But possible adverse reactions are a real concern, he said, noting that one of the protein targets on the tumor cells is also found on membranes that line the chest and abdomen. T-cell attacks could cause serious inflammation in those membranes and mimic lupus, a serious autoimmune disease.”

    What do you think about oncolytic viruses which are in testing, JX-594 from Jennerex?
    These viruses are programmed to infect only cancerous cells and also send out a message while inside the cell to tell white blood cells to attack.
