Sair just did not have answers. She understood Kobliad genetics in relation to their illness and that allowed her to be a part of the team that figured out how to use the original illness to concoct a cure, but this was an entirely different thing, wasn’t it? She rubbed her face. “I don’t know.” She stared at the brain scans hoping something would make sense. She then flipped to the the record the computer mentioned, hoping to glean something useful.

“Adrenaline was used before, when there was this rapid aging. But I don’t think that’s going to work here because we’re dealing with different effects. Well, it could. But we use hyronalin now as a radiation treatment. Maybe using it on the cells directly in a more concentrated form might repair the cells. I think it’s time to run a simulation,” Songz said, patting Nancy’s arm and moving over to the larger display.

She had the computer do a side by side comparison of both Nancy and Brian’s affected cells. “Computer apply a 200% concentrated hyronalin dose to the cells and display projected effects.”

=^= Working =^= The display showed effects based both on historical logs where doctors had given greater than normal doses to patients, along with hypothetical projections.

What showed in the end was that earlier high doses revealed an alteration in cellular structure with mild to moderate rejuvenation of the cells. Later higher dose models did not show this rejuvenation. Recovery from radiation poisoning was 48% faster with higher doses, though cellular structures in the more modern formulations showed healing to the cells but no noticeable change to the cells.

“It’s almost like the newer hyronalin is more focused. It heals the cells but just that,” Nancy said, leaning over and looking at the results as well.

Sair drew in a steadying breath and nodded. “Well, I’ve no problem going with older methods. Computer, run the simulation again but comparing both the older hyronalin formula and a the dose of adrenaline shown in previous records.”

The computer came back with a mild improvement. There was a restoration of cellular formation, a rejuvenation that was promising however it returned with a caveat of =^= 40% probability of accuracy within these parameters. Radiation form and type unique rendering projections inaccurate. Requires testing. =^=

“Of course it does,” Sair muttered.

Brian weighed in. “You know, I’m wondering. You know how you had some of the races having different effects. When this happened to me I would bet I had a rush of adrenaline. I wonder if the type differs by group.” Nancy shrugged and gave a ‘I have no clue’ look.

Songz looked at Brian and for a moment she wasn’t sure how to respond. Kel just moved beside her and grinned. “Well, it just happens that Doctor Songz is exceptionally good at experimental testing,” she said with a smile at Brian and Nancy. “Come on, Doctor, I’ll set things up and we can collect samples.”

She looked at her mother and Sair had an unreadable expression on her face before she sighed. “Alright, let’s start with cell samples from those we’ve already scanned,” she said as she grabbed a specialized hypo that would take the specialized draw they needed. She used it on herself, knowing that her people’s genetic anomaly would only make the testing more complicated. But hey, she wasn’t a genetic expert and somehow had managed to figure out how to correct develop a cure, so anything was possible here.

“Start taking samples and let’s keep an organized system. We need to test the epinephrine we already suspect, plus norepinephrine, dopamine and maybe cortisol as well,” she said to Kel. Sair gave Brian and Nancy a slight smile. “Bet you didn’t expect to be both the experimenters and the subjects today, did you?” They all were in reality, because if another wave hit them, she had no idea if it would continually amplify the age progression or regression and for some of them it would quickly present a life or death situation.

“Are we sampling as much of the crew as we can?” a technician asked. Nancy and Brian gave a shrug. “I’m pretty much a guinea pig as it is,” Brian said. “It sounds like we’re on some kind of track.”

Sair nodded. “We’ll have to get as many samples as possible to account for genetic variations, but in some cases we’ll have to simply guess. Not ideal, but the best we can do.”

Songz put out a call for the crew to help by dropping by to give a sample and her and Kel went about collecting and collating the data little by little. At least in their case, her and her mother and her son provided a good sample set given they were all related.
