Marcel Proust once said: "Out of evil comes forth good."  He repeatedly seems to be correct in that one.  I have to confess that I did not see this one coming though.

Aparently the virus, when injected into the brains of mice, KILLS AGGRESSIVE BRAIN TUMOURS WITHOUT KILLING NORMAL BRAIN CELLS.   http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-41146628.

It is too early for human trials, but could lead to a whole new means of attack.

Fingers crossed.
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
