When molecular biologist Tina "Teeny" Lisandro's father is stricken with MD, she makes a promise to help him. And while working in a lab she discovers a cure-immunity to diseases as a result of a splice between a human gene and one belonging to a rare salamander. It doesn't just boost the immune systems of the healthy-it repairs the damaged cells of those who are already ill.
