Listen close, cancer.
My T cells, they know what to do. They proved their awesomeness. We have spent the last four months training the immune system with IL-2. Training the right cells to pick up your scent. And destroy.
We let them have a taste of you. We let them eat tumors whole. Large ones. In one week. Gone. All gone.
You took advantage when we quit the IL-2. But don't assume it's your advantage now.
Cause guess what? We have been holding back the attack cells this whole time. Ha! Today we introduced into the body Ipilimumab.
You see, we all have brakes on our immune systems to prevent autoimmune diseases: We only let our T cells go so far.
IPI is a molecule that takes those breaks off. Lets the T cells work without the normal restrictions.
That is what we injected into the veins this afternoon.
We are so coming after you.
With the ferocious T cells off of their leashes.
p.s. and tonight we add a chemo pill to start your pain. It is so deadly I have to wear gloves to touch it. But I'm swallowing it and sending it straight to you. Gulp!
p.p.s. if you ever, you know, want to surrender, I'm totally cool with that. Totally.
