This is pretty amazing. Three research Doc's won the Nobel for he discovery 20 years ago of the enzyme that grants our cells a normal lifespan, and the same enzyme when overabundant, grants immortality to cancer cells. At least two cancer treatments are in clinical trials based on the discovery. It's the first time cellular immortality hallmark of cancer will be targeted without using systemic poisons. The enzyme was discovered 20 years ago, finally a Nobel. It's fairly ridiculous that it takes 20 years from discovery to clinic, but that's the norm. Hope we stop the war on science soon.
