Radiation Cure

There's been a scientific breakthrough in the war on terrorism.

Hollis-Eden Pharmaceuticals based in San Diego, California, has created what could be the antidote to a radiation attack.  The hormone based drug is called Neumune.

Hollis-Eden has conducted clinical trials on rhesus monkeys. All of the primates were exposed to lethal doses of radiation but, after being treated with Neumune, most survived.

The company hopes to have Neumune on the market by 2006.
