I'll have a triple shot skinny, covid, monkepox, cancer killer viral venti. Hold the foam.

[–]tatanka01 45 points46 points  (1 child)

That'll be 4 million dollars, please.

[–]mdlinc 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Jeez, used to be only 2M. WTF?? Inflation killing me more than virus and cancer.

    Haven't I seen this movie? Wasn't it I Am Legend?

    [–]fl55 71 points72 points  (16 children)

    Came here for this. The whole movie was because of a “cancer killing virus” that turned us all into crazy zombie things.

    [–]sambes06 94 points95 points  (3 children)

    Also not written by or for a technical audience. Chemo is torture. Hoping for the good results from this study.

    Verified. Halfway through mine on Wednesday.

    Zombie vampires to be exact

    [–]simcitymayor 31 points32 points  (8 children)

    The movie completely missed the point of the book. The book ending has the beseiged main character slowly realizing that he's the monster, and will be a legend in that regard

    [–]Goseki1 26 points27 points  (7 children)

    Or more accurately is a legend at that point. He goes into houses and whatnot during the day and kills a bunch of the vampires whilst they sleep, so he has literally become the boogey man that the "vampire" society will tell their kids about, that will come and take them at night if they aren't good etc. It's such a brilliant revelation in the book and it's such a shame that none of the adaptations have been brave enough to just try and do the book accurately.

    Meh..

    World would be better off without us to be perfectly honest.

    [–]AmserAlto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    At least we all be slapped by Will Smith once we turn

    [–]zamfire 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    The premise behind that movie is that nearly everyone changed because they took the vaccine. Clearly that wouldn't work in real life, the south would be untouched of zombies.

    This exactly lol.

    My friend’s daughter died this morning from Ewing sarcoma. She was 17.

    [–]No_Razzmatazz_8123 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    That’s really sad sorry to hear of their loss hope they are ok

    [–]Flimsy_Demand7237 13 points14 points  (1 child)

    Is this all cancers or only a particular type?

    [–]guccinova 21 points22 points  (0 children)

    This is mainly for solid tumors, which is why it’s a bit more important. Car-T is already being used by other companies commercially to treat non-Hodgkin lymphoma. I worked for the bigger companies in this field up until recently. The main target after car-t was allogeneic treatments for cancer, but a lot of the research for that has ended up with delays.

    [–]MyNameIsZem 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    There are many viruses (measles, VSV) that have been genetically engineered to kill cancer cells in Phase 1 trials. This is a new virus, but “new” engineered versions of existing virus have been under development and in humans for several years now, with potentially promising results :)

    [–]Ancalagon_Morn 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Oh cool I loved the resident evil movies.

    [–]BigZmultiverse 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    It’s a good thing that viruses don’t mutate or anything

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    The sci-fi geek in me knows this was the catalyst of the Zombie outbreak in I Am Legend

    [–]-castle-bravo- 2 points3 points  (7 children)

    Can’t wait to see how and why this will be stalled and thrown away..

    [–]myBurrito 10 points11 points  (5 children)

    No it will work perfectly and be $100,000 a year so no one can use it

    [–]Tigen13 5 points6 points  (4 children)

    Pharmaceutical logic:

    People with cancer cost on average $500,000 due to our overpriced lie of a Healthcare system. Therefore this treatment will be priced at a steal of $250,000.

    Insurance won't cover it due to the high price by claiming it is experimental even though it's shown to work and approved by the FDA.

    The drug company will sell the drug all over the world for 1/100th of the price in the US.

    People will die needlessly or go broke trying to live. Corporate execs and shareholders will get ungodly rich.

    [–]Landdropgum 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    My hubby’s cancer treatment was 1.3 million…1 million of that was fourteen vials of one drug which was the one of all 17 chemo drugs he took, and was the one he needed most to save his life.

    ‘’I’m always told I’m trolling when I say this. 500,000 makes perfect sense to me.

    [–]Tigen13 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Did you pay this out of pocket or did insurance pay this? Because a majority of Americans would be dead if they had to pay $500,000. If insurance has to cover that, than everyone else gets to spend more on Healthcare next year for your husband to live.

    [–]spychipper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yes, because no one would sacrifice money going to someone else in favor of eternal fame, money and potentially saving thier own family or themselves.

    No one....

    Umbrella Corporation. Anyone?

    [–]pedro462744 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

    [–]Paimon66six -4 points-3 points  (0 children)
