This is very interesting, a company called Micromet has a drug called MT103 that is very effective at killing off non-Hodgkins lymphomas.

And additionally, they’ve now figured out how to track mammalian immune system responses in realtime.

So put these two together and you’ve got a fantastic diagnostic and treatment program. This fits in with Ray Kurzweils prediction that if you can live just 15 more years, the probably of living past 120 years becomes more of a reality.

This is very encouraging news. I’ve lost too many people I love to diseases like cancer, HIV and ALS.
That we have ways to detect, and soon treat these diseases is great news.
