Peter Loftus on What We Know About the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine
"Peter loftus healthcare reporter at the wall street journal joins us. What we know about the johnson and johnson vaccine. Thanks for joining us. peter extra. We had some interesting vaccine news as the us was pausing. The administering of the johnson and johnson covid nineteen vaccine after there was an issue with these a rare blood clot cases that we've been hearing a lot about the cases are extremely rare. There's only six cases in about almost seven million doses. that have been administered. So far of the johnson and johnson vaccine so very very rare. This was a founding six women between the ages of eighteen and forty eight. I think the happen between six days and thirteen days after they got their vaccinations. So peter tell us what we're learning about. What's going on with this. They expect the pause to be about a few days. that's one. Fda officials said today so as you say these were extremely rare but the events themselves were serious. One of the women died. And the issue seems to be a very rare type of clot that affects the brain and it's called a cerebral venus sinus thrombosis and this is something that just also happens. Very rarely apart from the vaccine. But what i think caught. The attention of health officials was that this was happening in a small number of people who got the vaccine and they were having low blood. Platelet counts and so these two things together. We're unusual enough. That health officials think there could be a cause and effect here and that it's not just a case of someone getting the next team and experiencing an adverse health effect that they might have experienced anyway and so. That's where i think the caution comes in. And that explains i think why. Despite the small numbers health officials wanted to take this

Eli Lilly applies for emergency use of antibody drug for COVID-19
"Or Masuko. Company ally Lily as requested the emergency use authorization of its antibody based treatment for people with mild to moderate symptoms. Of Corona Virus, the treatment is similar to the one that president trump received and they could have one hundred thousand doses ready this month and one million by the end of the year. Peter Loftus Healthcare reporter at the Wall Street Journal joins us for more or Masuko company ally. Lilley has requested the emergency use authorization of an experimental antibody based treatment that they have cove in nineteen. This is similar to what the president was getting his monoclonal antibodies. He got it from a company called regeneration but ally Lilley has something similar and they're saying that there's a works. Okay. In clinical trials it they've been going through already and they think that they can seek approval as early as next month Peter. Tell us a little bit more about this one. Well. Yes. It is a similar approach to what I think. A lot of people have heard in the news about one of the treatments that president trump got an antibody based treatment. In this case with Eli Lilly what they did was they formed a partnership with another company where they actually took a blood sample from one of the first people in the US to recover from covid nineteen and they isolated. Certain antibodies in the blood sample. These are things produced by the immune system that help someone overcome a virus and infection, and so then to make a drug out of that, you essentially clothed that antibody and make bigger quantities of it and then fuse it and people tested, and so that's what he Li- Lilley has done. They've spent the last several months manufacturing doses of this and testing them in various studies, and so what they're seeking authorization for is to use this antibody based drug as a treatment for people who are recently diagnosed covid and have mild moderate disease and with the hope that the antibody would actually prevent that disease from getting worse and keep people out of the hospital and. So he really has some results from the study so far that suggests that this antibody can do that. It's so interesting kind of getting this education as we go through this pandemic, how a lot of these therapeutics and treatments are being made an early on we were talking about convalescent plasma literally taking the blood has antibodies from people that have had covert and recovered and putting that into people. Now, we're going through these treatments. As he said, we're using those same antibodies, making clones of them and making these treatments from that. So it really is interesting how these things are developing. Tell us about the study they started it in nursing homes and tell us how will work and the effectiveness of it. I, first he for this drug was actually in hospitalized patients and that was a very small study and they haven't set a ton about that study but I think they had what they considered promising results and then they moved on to bigger study. Don, hospitalized patient. So these would be people who have a diagnosis maybe have some symptoms, but they haven't yet gone to a severe stage. So they've tested you know having those people come into the clinic and giving them the infusion and then seeing how they do the nursing home aspect of it is from yet another study where they're actually bringing the antibody. Outta various nursing homes if that nursing has or looks like it's going to have an outbreak say if there's one case of cove. What they then do is they test the antibody and other residents and staff in the nursing home either to treat any existing disease that they may have gotten from this emerging outbreak or even for its potential to prevent disease that's called the prophylactic use of the antibodies to use it as a preventive measure, not only to treat an existing infection. Lily as I said earlier, they're hoping they can get this emergency use authorization or at least try to go for in November but they're saying that they could already have a thousand doses ready this month and as many as one million by the end of the year. So if they get that authorization, they're ready to go right away. It's very similar to like the vaccine candidates that were going through their producing the doses and having them ready just in case they get approved. Then just to clarify ally really has already filed for. An emergency use authorization with the FDA, and so it's possible that decision could come relatively soon and that would be for a single antibody. The main one that I've been talking about to treat these mild to moderate cases. In addition to that, they've contesting that one antibody they've been adding the antibody, and so it's a two drug combination and that's the one that they are expecting to apply for in November. But in either case, you're right they aren't making. The doses and they have certain targets for what they can produce by the end of the year and what they've produced already it is likely that you know if they were to get a government authorization relatively soon, there would be I think an imbalance in supply and demand there would be a greater demand then doses available, and so I think there's GonNa be some work to do to figure out if there's certain types of patients that should be prioritized. For Instance Lilley said today that it's possible that you could maybe reserve this initial supply of doses maybe reserved him for people who are sixty five and older or who are overweight because those groups that seem like they are probably most at risk of worsening to severe disease. If there's not this treatment that prevents that but you know if approved is could fill this gap until the vaccines do get authorized and push through as well. So just interesting stuff and hopefully they can work it out and hopefully it's safe and

"Beatles and he did that Album Abbey Road and at very and the song song goes and in the end. The law of you take is equal to the love. You make this thing. Is that true this episode? I go down to Irvine California to the University of California Irvine and speak to professor. Elizabeth Loftus Bath. Loftus is one of the top memory experts in the United States today. She's written books about this subject and has appeared in court many times to address the idea of witness memory reliability. She's worked on many famous cases including the mcmartin preschool case in which the operators of a preschool were accused of all sorts of horrible crimes but there was some question about the reliability of the testimony of the kids in that case because it turns out. It's possible to implant a memory either on purpose or by accident and to somebody's mind and this of course doesn't just apply to children but anybody can have a memory implanted in their heads. Something that patently did not happen. Most of us are pretty confident of what they think they remember but it turns out. Memory is a pretty malleable thing. It can actually change overtime and the long ensured of it is. You shouldn't be too all fired confident in your own memory. Professor Loftus Uis research bears this out and as well worth keeping in mind the next time you feel absolutely positive about something you remember or thank you remember. So here's my conversation.

Had different dimensions. Completely I was a hundred and thirty eight hundred dollars. One hundred and forty pounds. That's kind of a big like thirty eight pounds of muscle and fat. I mean you have to have both But I theory behind weightlifting. Is You gotta be consistent about and that is with anything with Diet and with your working out. 'cause I mean I'm sure if you're watching probably read that somewhere But it really in fact like if you are consistent about something show up for yourself make time And it's not just about thinking that one class it's nice like give you that that body Like if you look at me and you're like wow.

We have a deal, folks
"Ladies and gentlemen we have a deal what exactly the. US MCA is going to be from American public media. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal is Tuesday today. The tenth of December is always to have you along everybody. This was quite a day I mean yes sure that other story very big news but to those for whom the economy is our concern also so big. After a couple of days rumors house. Democrats announce this morning they have come to terms with the trump administration on the new NAFTA The US Mexico Canada agreement by name. It's been a bit more than a year since the deal was originally signed so on the theory that perhaps the details have faded from memory. Marketplace's Merrill Sagarra has this refresher fresher one of the long standing. Criticisms of NAFTA is that destroyed a lot of US manufacturing jobs. The treaty allowed Mexico to export products to the US. duty-free but wages are lower in Mexico. Doug Irwin teaches economics at Dartmouth college or what happened after that allow. US companies moved their assembly implants to Mexico so if you lost assembly jobs the original version of the US MCA tried to address that problem. It required Mexico to protect workers right to unionize and to increase wages for at least some Mexican Auto Workers Democrats wanted more than that. One thing was for Mexico to promise that conditions would improve establish Florida's messy as teaches government at Cornell but another thing was for those conditions to truly improve for the government to monitor conditions in factories. To make sure that whatever new regulations were in place would also be enforced. He says Democrats proposed that the US should be allowed to send inspectors turn into Mexican factories. Mexico said no but in this new version of the deal Mexico did agree to allow panel of experts to make sure it's following the rules. It's not clear exactly how that will work. You know it'll be interesting to see what exactly under which conditions these panels can be convened and who brings these cases another sticking point for Democrats the original deal would have given pharmaceutical companies ten years to exclusively make certain kinds of drugs. Christopher Sands is a senior research professor at Johns Hopkins so it means ten years in which generic copies cannot be made of drug. I think a lot of Democrats. The House saw this as really over the top especially since drug prices have been on the rise that part of the US is gone. Now and Democrats have also added some environmental rules. I'm Maryelle Cigar for marketplace. Honestly the first thing. I thought of this morning when I heard the news was apple's specifically glee Washington state apples from the Yakima Valley. My first reaction was a little bit of relief. Mostly that seems like we've cleared that a hurdle. That's Patrick. Smith are apple in hops farmer up in the North West the hurdle of course being no free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico his two biggest export markets for the apple industry here in Washington state. It was tens of millions of dollars of exports that were lost in the twenty eighteen crop. Not only because of the possibility of no more Nafta but also because of retaliatory tariffs from Canada and Mexico that sent his exports down thirty percent last year. Getting a deal. That would kind of clear all that out of the way and go back to some sort of stated normalcy is is really good the thing for us a state of normalcy under the US MCA no tariffs on his apple. Exports to Mexico and Canada. Just like under NAFTA but we're not making any big decisions really on the basis of US MCA or anything. We're still kind of in wait and see mode in cautiously optimistic for For improvements in in trade relations Patrick Smith up at the family farm loftus ranches in Washington. State still going. Maybe a couple of months before this thing is done by the way. See also that other big story in the news today that sucking all the air out of Washington

The Irish preferred to keep their distance from the English. It was far more preferable to what had come before the occupation the murders the stripping of rights and titles the intermingling between the Irish and the English especially in the south left a wound. That was not so easily healed field. The Loftus Tottenham family were squarely Protestant but Loftus Hall was haunted and not an acquaint. Legend didn't weigh in an ear shattering noises and furniture being thrown across the room way. The family feared they'd been cursed poor. TRAGIC AGIC and Tottenham died only a year before and the girl seemed unwilling to rest if it was an at all the servants. That's who had dealt with her towards the end refuse to believe that the quiet and browbeaten girl would make such a racket in death but no matter what the cause the disturbances they needed help. They sought Protestant pastors from as far away as Belfast but each man in turn either threw up his hands Refused to come at all and stepmother told her husband they needed to contemplate the unthinkable. The Catholics had rules for these things. Things rules to bind. Whatever was attacking the family? Perhaps it didn't matter if they didn't believe as long as the papists priests did. Maybe there was hope the exorcist Father Broder's was a small man unassuming in his cassock and collar he and his mop op of sandy blond hair looked far too young to wage spiritual battle but he got to work right away walking the whole of Loftus Hall asking every every question under the sun had objects flown here. Where do the noises seen loudest? Did they ever pray in this room. And if so where air it may Jane. The newly minted Mrs Tottenham and the deceased and stepmother villas. She'd been doing something wrong from the beginning she she disliked the thought immensely then quickly excused yourself leaving the priest to us work that night she was visited by Dia growling apparition which pulls her bed clothes away from her body with great force. She squeezed your eyes shut and waited for it to be quite right. She only had to deal with this for one night more. If the priest who knew what he was doing the next morning at breakfast she was dismayed. Need to learn that the priest had seen nothing he asked Mrs Tottenham. If she slept well she had to admit she did not while it felt admittedly tord he requested a rather unorthodox arrangement would Mrs Tottenham considered joining him in the tapestry room tonight whatever force. He's had attacked. Her would surely appear after dark and he would be able to end the thing once and for all her husband could join her the room of course if he desired. But Charles Tottenham did not desire which left the young priest. And the new Mrs Tottenham alone in the tapestry Brougham cold holds stormy night. Mrs Jane Tottenham sat on the bed and sped. She tried to the nearest an herself at first but soon the scratches and screams and spoiled food thrown at her face and chest were too much for her still will some part of her hoped whatever was haunting them wasn't her stepdaughter. She wanted the girl to be at peace but a small voice spoken Bokan her mind deep and honeyed. There was no please not here not ever. The priest wasn't welcome. I'm Jane shook her head all she heard was the buzzing of a fly. Father Broder's cast holy water about the room. He began to chant in Latin. Jane didn't recognize the speech but she also only barely remembered the rosary. There was that batboys again laughing per so devout. Wasn't she so close to God. Gene felt lightheaded. She sat back in the bed. Father Broder's either. But continued his pattern muttering his incantations. What's but they weren't magic far from it? The Lord's Word Wasn't pagan magic. Why had she thought that something inside right? Her smiled revealing sharp teeth funny little priest. Wasn't he so earnest. He didn't believe her about that night. No one did she was alone and would never leave this room just like the daughter she never had. The candles went out plunging. The room into eerie darkness. The rain and rolling thunder were all that remained to assure them they were still the human world. The priests continued as Latin. A laugh echoed around the space only moments later to Jane realize it that come from her then and only then did. The father turned his head will. Hello the boy spurred the priest asked her if she was all right he called her Mrs Tottenham but which one chain thought and or Jane and the poor mother or her madwoman daughter. He asked her name. He just called her Mrs Tottenham on them he knew her name what was he playing at. Flames leapt up in the fireplace. At least someone was taking care of her. It was frigid in here. She felt ice crystals forming in her throat. Each time she breathed the priest asked her name again silly man and she thought he knows my name. Everyone knows my name. I'm the Lady of the Manor. The excesses face was Pale Oakland sweaty. Jane suggested kindly that he lied down. He over extended himself. He was now brandishing across how vulgar Latin was louder. The demands were more impolite. All Jane did was laugh and laugh and laugh half the storm swelled outside and she swore she could feel some part of herself tearing open somewhere somewhere deep inside revealing something raw invulnerable still. She laughed or rather her body laughed. She was getting smaller and smaller drowning in the blackness that still clutched at her from the very edge of the candle soft soft tonight but that infernal Latin rattled around your mind like a songbird Cotonou closet. He kept asking her name. Was it her name. He knew her name. What other name was there and it must be an? He was asking about out poor. Jane should have done more. Honeyed voice neared over its sharp fangs. And my daughter's keeper burn the priest Blink Debtor. Had she said that out loud the Latin screeched around your mind a night bird now the XS name the voice he whose deeds were evil. Let's brothers for righteous. He who slew able something screamed within her raped. Its claws at her insights as it went down the Dow down. The fire leapt up then fell burning to ash and ember in front of her is further. Broder's lit another candle handle. He stepped closer examining or is he asked her to say the Rosary. She cried saying she didn't remember He. He helped her along or father. Who Art in heaven hallowed be thy name Jane closer is and breathe deep listening for for the honeyed laugh? The snap of sharp teeth by kingdom calm but all she heard was the rain by. We'll be done the the rain and the father's voice on Earth as it is in heaven waiting for her bringing her home.

It was eerily silent as the world had agreed to forget about her. No one came to visit the the sun fell and rose again. Eventually someone brought her a plate of food and dog at the cold pieces of meat as though they were the finest delicacy. She licked the plate clean and placed it by the door then. She resumed her position in her mind. Nothing could get had her. If she kept her back to the wall she would be able to see any potential threat coming the the day's bled together. She could no longer tell the sun or the moon was shining through her window. Only that the light hurter is it. It reminded her too much of David as he ascended into the unknown. She wanted it gone. She asked the servant that broader food. If something could be done done about the light he told her. The room had no windows. But that was ridiculous.

He saw some stray limbs lying in the sand beside at him. James is bloated face glared at him in waterlog judgment. David swore he'd never forget the sight. Aw and grasped. David's hand tightly devastated by his story. She told him that James I could never have judge David for finding a way to survive. David wasn't so convinced that he had survived. The Bible said that hell was a fiery place but fire had never scared him as much as the cold fathomless depths of the ocean. Perhaps this was some sort of purgatory. He stumbled for hours in the cold until he'd found blocked his hall and begged for nights shelter. Luckily Aunts Father had been merciful and smiled at. David touched that fate had somehow brought them together. She took her leave of him. I'm for the night hoping that he would be in the breakfast. Parlour when she woke up to ans- Gray Chile he was still recovering bring from his ordeal. David took up residence with Tottenham Ze two weeks pass by in the blink of an eye. One evening he asked if he could accompany her to the card party that night she shyly agreed as she dressed for the party and told her made that she and David were swiftly. Moving towards a proposal proposal. Being the wife of a naval. Captain wasn't exciting prospect but there were moments when she had her doubts not about the proposal David his eyes would bleed around her giant clots collecting Desirous they were there and then God again he always smelled of salt and soot even after his morning Aleutians when he spoke at the C. His hands clench into fists and his voice lost all of its warmth. She was afraid of him. In those moments in those moments she saw the captain that had killed people and tortured tortured others in the name of King and country. It frightened her that power he had to see people as less than human. She was terrifying that at some point she would say the wrong thing and he would speak to her the way he spoke about the rest of the world still he was a captain. There was a decent chance that he would be largely out at sea and she could continue in the manner of life to which he was accustomed. She did care for him and they never her hand an argument. Perhaps she was his beautiful exception. She wore her finest dress dress for the party as the party started. David was her partner in whist and studied your cards carefully when she was satisfied with a choice she slid her card onto the table. They lost the first round. A tightness grew around. David's is she resolved to you. Do Better in the next round to coax smile from his face they lost again. David Clutch the cards tighter and smiled old apologetically. This had never been her favourite game. He returned smile coldly. She played her next hand again. A loss the room was growing too hot. The stays have redressed pressed against her ribs. I'm comfortably making breathing being a struggle. If she wasn't careful she would faint and made her excuses and left the table. Someone more suited to cards could fill Lynn for her. She searched for a spot closer to the door. There were too many people in the room. Her breath started to stutter in her chest. The Ivory Maroon brocaded paper on the walls sinking the ceiling dropping lower as the walls began to close in hunter she. She clutched the railing of a chair for support swaying. The wallpaper designs started to drip onto the floor. She couldn't escape and then David was in front of her clutching her arm. A little too tightly. He told her she was embarrassing. Herself and him. She glanced down to her arm. Seeing a pattern of white and gray for where she had expected his skin to be. She tried to pull his hand away but he was stronger than she had realized that coldness she had seen it as is was finally directed at her something like lightning flashed in its pupils. He smelled so strongly assault that her nose burned. He yanked her back over to the table. Aw and sat in the chair. She'd left moments ago because she couldn't breathe and filtered chest clench again. There was something not quite human human about David and slowly shuffled through her cards. He barked at her to play one hand down. She glanced at her opponents Morni- but no one.
"loftus" Discussed on Haunted Places
"Sebastian was fully geeking out to when he was asked to be part of the leftist hall renovation people might have thought it was a bit strange for anyone to have a passion for parquet floors but the now derelict manor house at some of the most beautiful examples of historical parque. He'd ever seen the poor things had been exposed to the elements and vandalism for decades and they were in desperate need of some tender loving care. Sebastian Aston took his job seriously and often stayed late finishing sections of the floor. So the other workers wouldn't get impatient. He was just ceiling some panels near a staircase ace. When he heard a baby crying he went searching room to room? Sometimes kids played in abandoned areas but this child sounded sounded far too young to be wandering on its own it could become trapped in between the boards. His blood ran cold as he stepped closer. Sir to the sound it wasn't in the walls. It was in the floor. His beautiful floors our work centuries of history mystery. A child couldn't have gotten down under there. Could it the screaming was near deafening. Now he covered his ears but they still rang his heart heavy. He said his clash light on the ground and brought his restoration. Tools to floor chiseling as quickly and carefully carefully as he could bit by bit. He removed parts of the floor. The cries grew louder but all that he founded underneath was darkness darkness and dust. He climbed into the cavern. Then his flashlight went dark. The cries changed into gurgling shortfalls then a darker laughter. More adult unnerved. He dropped optus tools to the side and stood up squinting into the darkness. He didn't see the errant board left teetering behind him. He didn't see how it lined lined up perfectly with his chisel now impossibly angled sharp side up all he heard was the laughter as an invisible hand hand gave him the slightest push. It was the last thing he heard it all..
Why are Late Night TV Hosts Avoiding the Northam Scandal?
"Comedian and sitcom writer, Michael office says it's rather interesting kind of sad in his opinion that none of the late night comedians have picked up on anything regarding the Democrats in some of the democratic scandals that we've been seeing in the last week Loftus joined Fox News, FOX and friends and says he believes most of the late night comedians. Eight seem to have the same person writing for them. And it's it's it's stunning. That of all these late night shows, everybody's attacking it from the same angle. I've never seen anything like this. Like if you go to a comedy club. And five comics have a joke about their dog. There's going to be five different jokes and five different angles. But it's still about your Dr. Well, yeah. But this is just like bashing Trump and just bashing completely. So I don't think it's about comedy. I don't think it's about entertainment. They know a huge portion of the country isn't watching and they don't care. I literally think they're trying to win hearts and minds next Loftus shares how he believes he knows the fixes in. When you have Nancy Pelosi sitting back there sucking on her tooth like a like the winning lottery numbers are to come pop out hold. None of these four giant cars like she just stole the menus from an outback steakhouse you like no one's gonna make five. No one's going to touch on it as far as world that Johnny Carson's are today. Lofta says they're not allowed to participate. They they don't want a funny voice on the right? And that's why like the deplorable show that I'm doing is really important. Like, we gotta support this endeavour. There's creative people and we don't have that outlet
City of San Francisco threatens court action over Trump's acting Attorney General
"General was constituted today. The city of San Francisco threatened court action over the appointment noting that the city currently has four cases proceeding against the department of Justice that name fired attorney general Jeff Sessions as the defendant. San Francisco city attorney is asking the Justice department to provide the legal justification behind elevating Whittaker to lead the Justice department. Rod Rosenstein would have been the natural choice, by the way. Otherwise, the city says it may be forced to ask a judge for legal rationale. Now, the Wall Street Journal reports late tonight that the Justice department is expected to publish a legal opinion, supporting Whitaker's appointment that legal opinion is expected to come as early as tomorrow. Meanwhile, reports that Whitaker will not recuse himself from overseeing the Muller investigation despite his well documented his. Of making statements questioning its legitimacy have Democrats pursuing new avenues of inquiry Whitaker has declared that he is quote committed to leading a fair department with the highest ethical standards. Democrats are not taking that face value today. It emerged the top democratic leaders, including one with whom I'm about to speak in both the house and the Senate have sent a letter to Li loft us. This is Lee Loftus. He's the top ethics official at the department of Justice demanding to know immediately. What if any advice he has given Whitaker regarding recusals, quote, we request that you immediately notify us in writing regarding whether you or any other ethics officials at the Justice department have advised Mr. Whittaker to recuse from supervision of the special counsel investigation and the basis for that recommendation. It continues we also request that you provide us all ethics guidance. The department has provided to Mr. Whittaker. To date. The letter was
Allison's Nobel Prize beckons new era of immunotherapy
"Week. One of the more interesting Nobel prizes awarded was for that in medicine or medicine. It went to two people Dr James, Allison and Ta Su Honjo for discoveries that lead to a new way to treat cancer by targeting the body's immune system, rather than the tumors themselves. It's led to a host of new drugs. Immunotherapy is quite expensive. But people are saying that it works pretty well on certain types of lung cancer and melanoma, which is a form of skin cancer. So this story we spoke to Peter Loftus. He's a reporter for the Wall Street Journal. We started off by asking him who were these Nobel prize winners, James Allison and tests Uku Hondo. Both of them have specialized in immunology studying the body's immune system. This turned out to be a critical part of what they discovered and to put it in context, if you think about the mainstays of cancer treatment over the years. Things like chemotherapy and radiation, which were effective an effective in certain situations. But they can also be blunt instruments in the sense that they can destroy healthy cells in the body along with cancer cells. So that causes all sorts of complications going back about fifteen twenty years. There was another advance in cancer treatment. And that was the target genetic mutations in cancer cells now, immune based approaches sort of the newest wave and one of the more significant approaches to treating cancer in a long time these two scientists working separately. But in parallel discovered features about the body's immune system that led them to figure out that if used certain kinds of drugs to target immune system cells in a certain way, it'll basically better equipped the body's own immune system to go after and destroy cancer cells. So exactly how does it work. I was reading a lot about checkpoints. And how a lot of this stuff. Let's T cells, basically. Attack the cancer cells T cells are form of white blood cells. And this is where the magic really comes through in. What's so interesting about what they discovered was that the body's immune system has sort of its own natural checkpoints were break. So that it doesn't go overboard and Batak the healthy parts of the body. Cancer cells have basically figured out how to split that. And so they in some way, they sort of latch onto the brakes of the body's immune system, in a way that helps them escape described destruction. And so these drugs that have come out of the research from both sides, essentially, take the brakes off also the body. John immune
