New antibody approach

Rogue CD-4 T-cells can be killed by NK cells, but if they present a particular ligand, (binding molecule), on their surface, the NK cells can't get rid of them. Using antibodies to block this ligand allows the NK cells to kill these unwanted immune cells. Good that mouse and human cells are so similar.

Hell for all I know that's just what they told me to make me not turn around. Now comes the six months of waiting to get into the extension. I get an MRI in four weeks and then some more ...

Antivirals for Tonyjegs

Tonyjegs,

Are there some antivirals that are marketed to combat diseases of the brain?
