    Yeah, thats very interesting - I hope it leads somewhere.
    Its the basis behind cancer cells - their ability not to die :eek: - so I hope this method is the way ahead -- but how to target those specific cells to tell them to die, is that any different than targetting the cells themselves?

    A quote from the article:

    "When the scientists tested PAC-1 on cancerous and non-cancerous tissue from the same person, the tumour cells were 2,000-fold more sensitive to PAC-1."

    Sounds to me like they just give the treatment, and let the cancer commit suicide...

    very interesting...

    Great news. Hopefully we'll see some developments available to the average joe in the coming years. :)

    Wish it was ready right now so they could use it on my dad :(

    Hopefully this does become usuable in the future
