Abstract: "In Rise of The Planet of the Apes we learned about a gene therapy, delivered by a virus, in order to cure Alzheimer’s disease. A side-effect was that the apes become more intelligent. In Dawn of The Planet of the Apes we discover that the same ape-enhancing virus is lethal to humans and has wiped out most of humanity. Hear about examples of current infections that can alter brain function, viruses that could wipe out 90% of humanity and the potential for gene therapy to cure many current diseases."
