Product Overview

El doctor Daniel Lowell y su asistente (y amante) Stephanie son cientificos que investigan en el campo de la biotecnologia celular. Estan desarrollando una posible cura para enfermedades como Alzeihmer, Parkinson o diabetes. La investigacion se basa en transplantar celulas sanas para alterar el ADN de las celulas enfermas. Los experimentos que realizan con ratones dan muchas esperanzas de exito y el proximo paso es experimentar con humanos.
El trabajo de Lowell se ve totalmente paralizado y la empresa que le financia retirara todos los fondos si la ley se aprueba. Estara arruinado. Pero de repente, el senador Ashley le cita en secreto para confesarle que el sufre de Parkinson, lo cual implica el final de su carrera politica. Quiere probar el nuevo tratamiento de Lowell y, si funciona, promete apoyar su investigacion. Ashley tambien le hace una exigencia inesperada: las celulas que usen para el transplante han de proceder de la Sabana Santa. Conseguir unos fragmentos de hilo del sudario sera toda una aventura y un fascinante argumento secundario.
