Doomed to oblivion: a very promising cure for cancer

Read about research by Professors Justyna Leja and Magnus Essand into a virus that can destroy pancreatic cancer cells without noticeable side effects. Then share their frustration that no company or government is prepared contribute the ridiculously small sum of £2M needed to fund clinical trials. Without these, the treatment will never be licensed for use in humans.

At the time of writing, the campaign to crowdsource the necessary funding has been running for almost two weeks, with a further four to go - but less than 10% of the total has been raised so far. This needs a massive push now! Please alert your friends.
