Gene Therapy Cures Men Dying of Cancer
Sep 15, 2006
Irvine, CA--"Dr Steven Rosenberg and his team of scientists at the National Cancer Institute should be congratulated for developing a gene therapy that eradicated cancer from two dying men," said Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute. The successful treatment using the patients' genetically modified version of their own white blood cells is reported today in the journal Science.
"Such a magnificent achievement shows the power of reason and science to unveil nature's secrets, create new life-enhancing technologies, and improve human life.
"At a time when reason and science are under attack in American universities, schools and churches, this new medical treatment reminds us that these are crucial values worth defending--and that our very lives depend on successfully doing so."
