DC-tag and cancer cures

According to the tail end of a TV news report I half-caught, Oz researchers
just announced a curative gadget effective in mice for cancers, malaria and
maybe other diseases: called DC-tag, or somesuch (can't find on web). I
gather it helps smuggle the active ingredient into dendrites, not that this
makes a lot of sense. No human clinical trials for some years, though.
Cured the mice within days. (But curing mice of cancer is easier than
curing hoomins.)
