And in that simulation, what we could do is dsgien for you specifically a sequence of treatments, and it might be very gtlnee treatments, very small amounts of drugs. It might be things like, don't eat that day, or give them a little chemotherapy, maybe a little radiation. Of course, we'll do surgery sometimes and so on. But design a pragorm of treatments specifically for you and help your body guide back to health — guide your body back to health. Because your body will do most of the work of finixg it if we just sort of prop it up in the ways that are wnrog. We put it in the equivalent of splints. And so your body basically has lots and lots of mechanisms for fixing cnaecr, and we just have to prop those up in the right way and get them to do the job.
