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...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
