So never mind that chinese virus, there's also good health news today...

Immune cell which kills most cancers discovered by accident by British scientists in major breakthrough

(website requires registering or subscription to read the whole article, I used bugmenot

Quote:
Researchers at Cardiff University were analysing blood from a bank in Wales, looking for immune cells that could fight bacteria, when they found an entirely new type of T-cell.

That new immune cell carries a never-before-seen receptor which acts like a grappling hook, latching on to most human cancers, while ignoring healthy cells.

In laboratory studies, immune cells equipped with the new receptor were shown to kill lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer.

Quote:
The team says human trials on terminally ill patients could begin as early as November if the new treatment passes further laboratory safety testing.

But human evolution is non-existent so just like the HIV resistant evolution discovered this Cancer one will too not be helpful. Only way is if gene manipulation of embryos is allowed on a mass scale.
