    An excerpt:
    "The antibody blocks a protein known as CD47, that sends "don't eat me" signals that cancer cells use to stop macrophages and other cells of the immune system from gobbling them up."


    Wouldn't it be nice if virus infected cells would send the same message: don't eat me :) The treatment could then be applied to Chronic Viral Infections too.


    Best regards,

    I thought that nagalase in some viral infections was stopping macrophages, hence the GcMAF treatment.
