cityofangels, i need a geneticits

Recommended Posts

I may have spelled that wrong, I blame the beer. it is sunday after all. so I read this article, or attempted to read it as its very scientific and after about 1/2 I started skimming as I want in the mood to think too much.




if im reading this correctly, a type of hsv2 that had a different temperature survival rate was introduced into a subject and its dna "corrupted" the originals??

I know there is research into using genetically modified H to attack cancer cells and such and this may have been part of that but IF another subspecies of H can be introduced which doesn't survive at a different temp, such as 102F AND it will change the DNA of existing H, could it not be another route toward a "cure"? ( and before someone says it, no im not expecting a cure in my lifetime, I just like thinking about weird scientific crap, :) ). ie, intro the new tpe, let it mix then induce a fever. not the cleanest cure ive ever heard of but if it works.....


sorry cityofangels, but I may bother you a lot, lol. I love talking weird science stuff. I have a few science types at my church and we like to talk a lot of high weirdness. its a UU church.

Well they are already doing things like this with HIV thanks to the discovery that about 1% of people have a gene that blocks HIV... so they have been trying to replicate something like that to control or immunize against HIV

I will look at the article that you sent, but I can tell you that what you are talking about is very, very complicated and cutting-edge. Some speculative uses of different viral vectors to "neutralize" an original virus are in existence, but again, their are experimental and not likely to see clinical trials or mass production for a long time. I will comment in greater detail later.
