This is wonderful news. Many patients are getting cured of some cancers thanks to this treatment. If it weren't for my father-in-law this might not have been possible. When he got the text last night he was in tears and believe me it takes a lot to move him to tears.

Good news.

I wonder if the same concept can be applied to other diseases, like HIV/AIDS, that attacks the T cells. One breakthrough like this can lead to a lot of other treatments for other diseases.

Well, HIV is what's used in this process so I guess eventually.
