Submission + - Next-gen Approach To Drug-resistant Infections (weinterrupt.com)

Art Vanderlay writes: "A dynamic presentation made by Nobel Prize winning chemist, Dr. Kary Mullis sums up a breakthrough new treatment for killer infections in less than five minutes.Dr. Mullis' presentation earned him a standing ovation, as much for the treatment method as for the presentation in which he described the process as being similar to a cop throwing a bag of marijuana into a suspect's car to allow them to get them off the street. His presentation describes how you can provide immediate immunity to any desired antigen. To test out his theory, a bunch of mice were given anthrax and were treated with a drug that was made that to attack anthrax in particular, and direct your immune system to it. Those mice had a 100 percent survival rate."
