    Just interesting lung cancer vaccine in cuba

    My wondering is about how if at all it would help smokers and vapers past and present if at all when fully developed...

    Australia doesn't have an embargo of Cuba (or does it?). Why aren't we collaborating with the Cubans to run Oz trials (of their various magic potions) right (bloody) now?

    Note Cuba train just about the most doctors & nurses per capita than any other country,
    Evil communist plot perhaps ?!?
    This will probably get tested in various third world countries, fairly soon.
    Viva da Revolution ?!?

    Calling it a vaccine (although technically correct) is misleading, it sounds like it's used more like a treatment after the fact? And only a moderately effective treatment;

    A Phase II trial from 2008 showed lung cancer patients who received the vaccine lived an average of four to six months longer than those who didn’t.

    Calling Cimavax a vaccine is a bit misleading in that it is not a preventive medication. However, it is making strides in existing cancer patients by preventing the growth and metastasizing of lung tumors, prolonging life for four to six months longer than patients who did not take the vaccine.

    In other words they are working on it .. My thoughts and why it is so interesting is that technology in terms of internal medicine is going at a rate now that is unpecidented in history .. this "Vaccine" should they continue working on it in 10 years will be altot more effective than it it now.. who knows maybe it reaches full potential as a vaccine .. hell alot of medicines and tech often dont get released to the public for 10 or more years

    We are even now able to print parts of lungs and other organs
    3D Printed Muscle Tissue Now Possible

    and I put it under the title interesting bc these are potential game changing things that are comming our way relatively soon and that perhaps we dont hear about too often when talking about smoking or vaping ..

    Remeber ANTZ Australia alone spent $100,000,000 screaming about smoking and now more will be probably budgeted for trying to control vaping .. budgets instead of being increaserd or invested into biotech research which could potentially help everyone not just smokers or vapers , is being cut rather than increased and not many are saying anything about it anywhere

    I cant help help wonder sometimes if we spent more more on real research and development into research like the vaccine if the game between smokers, and others wouldnt end up just being mute? Just a personal small "uninteresting" opinion of an irrelevant net person...

    A lung cancer vaccine. Interesting. But would any of us go back to smoking?

    I can see Chapstick and his ilk trying to ban the lung cancer vaccine on the grounds it's a gateway to smoking.
    The clean break: Last smoke on 2/12/2012, first vape on 3/12/2012.
