The Thanatos Institute has developed medical applications based on
nanotechnology used to inhibit
the Thanatos Factor inhibiting (TFI).

Reactivation For Transplantation
The first technology deployed is Reactivation For Transplantation (RFT):-
Although we believe the process to be safe, and to offer significant
advantages over traditional transplantation methods, we must emphasize
that RFT is a new process. For this reason, whenever possible,
the Institute is performing long-term follow-up
studies on patients who receive RFT-treated organs.
- In the normal process for medical transplantation, the organs or tissue
to be transplanted is preserved during transport
by being kept in a refrigerated environment. Following transplantation,
anti-rejection drugs are used to ensure the recipient does not reject
the donated tissue.
- The RFT process is identical to the normal process except that
self-replicating reactivating nanites are introduced into the donated tissue
prior to refrigeration. This helps prevent the cells in the transplant
tissue dying, and also has been found to greatly reduce the likelihood
of tissue rejection. The self-replication capability of the nanites
ensures that all areas of the tissue are penetrated.
Full Body Reactivation
Full Body Reactivation is a medical applicaton which is still in
development. The intent, as the name implies, is to reactivate cellular
activity throughout the body by introducing nanites either soon after death,
or prior to death. Thes same type of nanites are used as in RFT:
the difference is that whereas in RFT the nanites are used only a single organ
or piece of tissue, in FBR the nanites are introduced
throughout the body.
Although FBR technology is still at a very early stage of development,
experiments have already advanced to the stage where 30% to 70% of the
body's cells can be reactivated. In test subjects after cellular
reactivation occurred, limited brain-function was also reestablished,
including movement, response to stimuli, and basic survival instincts
(hunger, aggression etc.).
