    I hope I have this in the right place. Apologies to the mods if I don't.

    Does anyone know anything about bacteriophage therapy? Bacteriophages (phage for short) are viruses that infect bacteria but don't harm the host (eg humans). They are being used in drug resistant cases of bacterial infections.

    There is a clinic in Reno that does phage therapy. Has anyone heard of someone who has been there?

    It has been used big in India, but AFAIK only for cleaning in hospitals but never for Tx because it didn't work.

    There is a very nice animation out somewhere (like youtube) of the T4, which is the one that looks like a lunar lander.
