After a long, hard day of rental-hunting after giving my horrifically dry presentation on acute lymphoblastic leukemia, I came home, plunked down and turned on “Stargate: Atlantis” to begin my Night of No Studying.
Fifteen minutes in, I am stupefied to hear the new bad guy telling us how his daughter is suffering from a nearly identical disorder (“acute lymphocytic leukemia,”) and how some of the preferred treatments I presented this morning (induction chemotherapy, Vincristine, Prednisone and cranial irradiation) were not working.
I could’ve cited 677 clinical trials to take a look at prior to injecting his daughter with nanites, but we only have 45-ish minutes per episode, after all.
Funny timing, though. 🙂
