How do you feel about the prospect of nano-machines? From what I've seen on the perimeter of the science world, they've been getting a lot more attention.

What exactly do you want to know? Just my opinion about its feasibility or viability?

Nanomedicine is a truly novel treatment field and holds TONS of potential.

During my Masters I used self assembling nanoparticles as part of my proposed targeted combination therapy system for curing breast cancer. It showed very high levels of success in tumor targeting. tumor regressions, and limited side effects. (In an in vivo model) 

Nanomachines are the next step for nanomedicine and I truly believe that we will reach a point where we will be able to utilize these tiny robots in medicine very successfully. smiley: pimpsmiley: happy

The CCR5 deletion is a 32 base pair deletion which just makes it shorter. delta 32

smiley: indifferent Wrong use.

How did I use is it wrong? By saying that's what you might as well had just posted since your comments clearly showed that you didn't read the previous posts.  smiley: indifferent

Basically, I was saying your comments showed you didn't read and so they are pointless, as pointless as posting that gif. smiley: laugh


smiley: grin Both comments were replying to stuff said in this exact thread smart guy.

In all, do you think that a cure to common forms of cancer will be achieved through the use of nanomachines?

Also, if you don't mind, do you think that nanomachines run the risk of becoming a bigger threat than anything else? I.E. do you think that biological weapons can ever be created through the use of nanomachines? I know that nanomachines and viruses have a lot in common (viruses are essentially nature's nanomachines, from what I understand,) and to imagine if a corporation could replicate something like the ebola virus... it's a scary thought.

Obviously you read the comments about Steve Jobs, but clearly you didn't read the previous posts to understand he was brought up in the first place.

Either that or your reading comprehension just sucks, smart guy.

I think that a lot is possible with nanomachines including the possibility to help cure/treat cancers. Specifically using them to directly target cancer cells instead of normal cells to destroy them or to deliver drugs to them, for example. 

With any new technology there is the risk of bad people using them for bad things. Nanomachines which could be used to specifically target certain parts of the body to do very specific things for treatment could most certainly be used to wreck havoc on people as well. It wouldn't be classified as a biological weapon since robots are not organic "living things", but I get what you're asking. And, yes they could be used to create weapons, but hopefully that will never happen. You can't prevent a wonderful technology from being developed just cause there is risk involved, with that attitude there would never be any new technology. Also, its a problem with people not the technology itself.

Nanomachines aren't really like viruses except for the fact that they are small and can do a lot for their size. Viruses are organic and still use RNA/DNA and proteins to do their work, to live. Nanomachines are tiny robots which would mostly be composed of metal or other conducting materials.

Nanomachines don't really pose any additional threat then what's already out there that people can use to create biological weapons. Using genetic manipulation to create viral weapons for example. People can already do things like this. The only additional thing would be that nanomachines could be controlled directly, and viruses cant.

Yes, CCR5 delta 32. That's the main mutation which has been found to be associated with these individuals and the reasoning for the missing receptor on their cells a lack of protein expression.

A shortened gene causes the absence of proper gene expression of this receptor.

The cure has been announced in the mainstream media pretty lowkey.

Check Google. You need to be of means though.

I find this thread to be STRAIGHT COMEDY.

Like SillyPutty said Aids changes constantly and because its spread out over the world you might find different ways of it all over. The only way to deal with it as of the moment is through treatments till someone finds out how to shut it down in it a generic way which works will all forms of HIV/Aids.

Cancer is the same way. It most likely will NEVER be 10% curable due to it effects everyone differently. It could start in the lung then spread to the heart with one person. It could start in the leg of another. Cancer has too many forms.

When it comes to the "Cure", people should really understand that there may never be one but on how to treat the disease

Why? Because people dont understand? What exactly is comedic to you? The subject matter?

lmao lance armstrong got his testicle removed and took many many many steroids and hormones...

lmao @ he's been cured of anything

i love hearing people regurgitate something they heard and thought sounded smart

i agree, its more profitable to treat a disease than cure it, i mean, who's making billions off the newest polo medicine? right.

but at the same time, you say that, and if we really pushed, i doubt you'd be able to articulate any sort of support for saying it

sounds like you're repeating something you heard.

thats just my honest opinion...i maybe wrong.

If I'm not mistaken I think they took him to the supreme court back in the late 80's to disprove him. He ended up winning the case.

So, is there any scientific data to support this guy?

As a science major I was drawn in by this thread title. If you have enough money you can live a LONG time with AIDS. If you're poor you're **** out of luck

Dudes who believe that should go and get HIV, not take the meds for it, end up with AIDs and then take this guys cure.

Lets see some commitment.
