    This is pretty exciting news.

    I wonder how they define "response" in response rate.

    That is exciting. I hope it becomes an alternative to the radiation and chemo that folks have to go through.

    I imagine though that it works for certain cancers, and may be not for others. Nevertheless, it is an exciting break through.

    That is great. At least it's not chemo where you kill cells at random, and people loose their hair. I find this very interesting. I just wonder why it's not on national tv.

    If the body can be made to fight off cancer by itself that would transcend all the cures.
