A new treatment's promise brings heartbreaking ups and downs
from The New York Times
Scientists had compared the entire genetic sequences of the tumor cells invading Beth McDaniel's body with those in her healthy cells, searching for mutated tumor genes that could be thwarted by drugs approved for other cancers or even other diseases. That had led them to give her an expensive drug approved just a month earlier for melanoma patients. In theory, the drug should have killed her. Instead, it seemed to have halted or even reversed her cancer.
