In the year 2018, mankind has overcome a number of diseases once thought incurable.
Cancer, AIDS, and TFTA are nearly things of the past. However, a new plague has
emerged to threaten humanity...
...it's called GUILT
Very little is known about this new disease, but rumor has it that GUILT might
be the first biological weapon used for "medical terrorism."
Our only hope may
lie in Caduceus International... a semi-covert organization designed to research and
treat the world's most "untreatable" diseases. Caduceus has managed to keep GUILT
hidden from the public so far, but how can they possibly eliminate a disease they
don't even know how to treat properly?
Meanwhile, Derek Stiles has just completed his residency and joined the surgical
team at Hope Hospital, where routine clinical cases are about to become something
far more serious...
