A breakthrough against leukemia using altered T-cells
from The New York Times
When Emma Whitehead was near death from leukemia, her parents sought an experimental treatment at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. It was one that had never before been tried in a child, or in anyone with the type of leukemia Emma, then 6, had. The experiment used a disabled form of HIV to reprogram Emma's immune system genetically to kill cancer cells.
