Here's a link to an interesting new piece of cancer research from the UK.

A genetically modified herpes virus was used to treat cancer in a study carried out at a London hospital and seems to have been pretty successful according to this account:

Perhaps Herpes viruses aren't all bad news after all, if you can get the little guys to work for you instead of against you!

Perhaps eventually coinfections in XMRV/ME/CFS, where they exist, can also be encouraged to work for us in the future - by knocking each other out! :victory:
