A new review article published in the journal Trends in Cancer is presenting a promising case for phenformin, an old diabetes drug related to metformin, being repurposed as an adjunct to new immunotherapy cancer treatments. A phase 1 clinical trial is already underway to test the safety of the combination treatment for skin cancer.

Further Proof Covid has become just another Political Weapon

by: Brent Smith

Let’s talk about weapons of war. No, not scary black “assault” rifles. I’m talking about the weapon of disinformation and the war on the people, devised and implemented by the global elite. I’m talking about possibly hundreds of thousands of sick and dead from Covid-19 – most as it turns out, could have been prevented by the simple use of a single drug, Ivermectin.

A drug that was discovered 46 years ago, in 1975, and has been in medical use since 1981, And it is FDA approved, unlike all the new and hastily developed vaccines, that cost billions to produce and distribute. read more

A Brain Cancer Vaccine?

A new vaccine is designed to help train immune cells to target a mutation unique to brain tumors
A new vaccine is designed to help train immune cells to target a mutation unique to brain tumors

A new article published in the journal Nature is reporting promising results from a landmark Phase 1 human trial testing a novel vaccine designed to help a patient’s immune system better target brain tumors. The data suggests the experimental vaccine is safe and stimulates a significant immune response that slows tumor progression. A larger Phase 2 trial is currently being planned. read more

Herd Immunity is Coming Fast and those like Fauci aren’t Going to Like it

by: Brent Smith
Dr. Saint-Fauci is a certifiable nightmare. This guy, who Trump should have sacked in the first weeks, tasted the deliciousness of his “15 minutes of fame.” And since, he has refused to give it up. And like his political oligarch counterparts, he says and does anything to remain relevant, regardless of the cost to businesses and the toll his nonsense has taken on real people. Don’t be surprised if this media whore runs for political office when this is all said and done. And why not – he’s from New York. He would fit right in.

If There’s no Science – Just Guess

by: Brent Smith

The left, for decades, have been repeating the mantra, “we must follow the science.” In all things, or least all things that advance their agenda, we must follow the science.

They’ve been saying this about things like man-caused climate change, regarding creationism vs. evolution, intelligent design vs. Darwinism, etc.

Now, for almost a year, the left have attached themselves to “science” once again. We’ve been told that where Covid-19 is concerned, we must follow the science. read more

Herd Immunity by April? Statists will Never Allow it

from the Daily Wire:

U.S. Will Reach Herd Immunity For COVID-19 By April, Johns Hopkins Doctor Says

“Scientists shouldn’t try to manipulate the public by hiding the truth.”

Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at the renowned Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, on Friday sent shockwaves through the medical community in a Wall Street Journal piece headlined, “We’ll Have Herd Immunity by April.”

“There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection,” Makary writes. “As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.”

Regrow Your Muscles?

Researchers have discovered an enzyme that could aid in the repair of muscles
Researchers have discovered an enzyme that could aid in the repair of muscles

Although muscle stem cells are able to grow and repair torn muscle tissue after we sustain an injury, they become less effective as we age. Now researchers at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University have discovered a novel protein that can trigger the proliferation of these stem cells and promote healing, offering hope not only to those who have torn a muscle, but also the elderly and those suffering severe muscle wasting diseases.

While studying the cells that migrated to the site of a muscle injury in zebrafish, the researchers noticed macrophages appeared to play a role in triggering the regeneration of muscle stem cells. Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that converge on the site of any injury or infection in the body to clear away debris and promote healing. Professor Currie calls them “the clean-up crew of the immune system.”

To study the regeneration of skeletal muscle, the research team, led by Professor Peter Currie, turned to zebrafish. The zebrafish is a popular animal model for studying cell regeneration due to their quick reproduction rate, the fact that they share at least 70 percent of their genes with humans, and the ease with which they can be manipulated experimentally. They are also transparent, providing a convenient window for the viewing of actual regeneration in living muscle.

When the heart is injured it can’t repair itself, meaning that heart failure often requires a transplant of the whole organ. But now, scientists at EPFL have developed an artificial aorta that can help pump blood, taking some of the pressure off the heart and reducing or even eliminating the need for a transplant.

WND Exclusive – WHO changed virus test parameter the day Biden took office

from Brent Smith at World Net Daily:

On Jan. 20, 2021, the WHO (World Health Organization) posted an important bulletin regarding polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19. What else happened on 20 January that was important? That’s right. It was the very same day Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. But I’m sure the WHO release was purely coincidental.

LifeSite News claims that the notice was released one hour after Biden took office. Although I can’t confirm that exact time, the WHO guidance bulletin is dated Jan. 20, 2021. read more
