I had to look up the word "boffin". Seemed timely given the release of Romero's Land of the Dead. News.com.au reports that scientists at Piottsburgh's Safar Center revived dogs that have had their blood replaced with very cold saline for three hours. This basically seems like a form of induced hypothermia. Their hope is that it might save humans with traumatic injuries.
Okay, but if I hear the words "T-virus" come up, I'm gonna go fetch my gun.
