  • It's starting to look like mRNA vaccines will be the cure for many an illness. I approve.

    Especially if those named in the headline continue to refuse to utilize it.
  • "emerging mRNA vaccine technology could instead train our bodies into generating additional antioxidant proteins melanin, boosting our ability to shield our DNA from damage caused by sunlight."

  • Oh, mark my words, the same people that refused to vax against covid and spread it around in a foul snail trail all over America and killed nearly a million Americans so far.. these motherfarkers will be the first in line begging for the cancer killing mRNA tech to fix all the cancers they accumulate by living like the farking inhuman monsters they are.

    Since mRNA is a piece of code for a protein / molecule, it could in theory be introduced in the body to produce any codeable therapeutic compound..

    Yes, now watch me drink this glass of milk.  Fear my mutant powers!!!!

    /ahhh.... sunlight.  It's my kryptonite!

    I DO love dairy and hate the sun. No wonder Mike Pence hates the X-Men. He's worried they'll discover his mutant secret.
  • I wouldn't be surprised if there are a number of mRNA cancer vaccines rolling out over the next few years since it's a big topic right now.

    If it is made of amino acids an mRNA treatment / vaccine can get your body to make it.

    Now here's where it gets interesting. You can also code the mRNA to make a protein that in turn can make other compounds in the body. This may be a little ways off. Currently the Covid vaccine is just making the spike protein. They float around in the body and don't do anything besides get spotted my the immune system which results in antibody production based upon the spike. Making a novel protein that then can go to work inside the cell is a much bigger challenge, but potentially could result in actual cures for numerous conditions and syndromes.
  • It's all fun and games until the furries alter their skin DNA to grow animal-quality fur. With tiger stripes.
    Then what are you going to do?

    /Yiff, obviously.

    Yes we are. We traded excellent sun protection for the ability to survive at latitudes over 40. We also increased the variety in eye / hair coloration. Not sure if it was a good trade, but increasing the variety of humans is nice. Would be better if we weren't such dicks about people that don't look like ourselves.

    More mutants.

    Anyway, there's no way that people 'should' be. But dang if mixing up genes as much as possible doesn't lead to very pretty people.

  • There is no escape.  we are all getting it.  it's like when a little kid pees in the pool, sooner or later, you're going to get a little piss on you.  it doesn't matter if we all wore masks or get the vaccine.  we are all in the same pool, and someone already pissed.

    That's what TFA is talking about ... making an antioxidant enzyme that protects your cells.  It's not really a "vaccine", because it's not trying to stimulate an immune response.

    But I'm not sure how this is supposed to work.  mRNA degrades quickly in the body, so your body won't be making these proteins for very long, certainly not continuously.  So unless the manufactured proteins themselves last indefinitely (doubtful), it's going to be a short-term effect.  That's also why you have to keep taking medicines for chronic conditions; they're usually not one pill and you're cured, because the drug degrades in the body over time (or is bound to its target and no longer biologically available).  To get your body to keep making the proteins indefinitely, I'd guess you'd need DNA gene therapy, something like CRISPR?

    Sure, but we can just charge them everything they got for a dose.

    Yeah, I have the same understanding as you which is why I referred to "therapeutic compounds".  But I didn't lay it out like you did.

    I think there are potential advantages - mainly getting the "med" closer to the site of need.  Lotsa research needed first.
  • The idiots apparently need to understand they need to survive in sufficient numbers to take over anything. If enough of them die, this fascist shait isn't going anywhere. Most ironic thing is they will be responsible for creating the variant that takes them out, hopefully the rest of us can stay ahead of it. Collectively we are too stupid and egocentric to survive anyway but it was ok for awhile i guess.

    I'm not a scientist but I think they're going to need mDNA to add branches on their family trees.
  • Mice get all the good things.
