Thank God we can cure the mice. There are many trials that show promise in rodents but did not translate to the care of humans. Bench research is important but I feel that media over emphasizes the findings of preliminary studies and raises the hopes of people who are facing a horrible disease and prognosis without necessarily presenting a path to treatment.

I like this title way better than the first one I saw posted on reddit. It was something like “Scientists in Israel cure deadly pancreatic cancer in two weeks!”

I think these were the same group that said a few months ago that they cured all cancers

Xenograft study… These don’t translate very well to human studies.
