A doctor who knew nothing about Aids treated a man for cancer and decided to "reconstruct" his immune system. The patient is aids free. How was this received? It was criticized at conferences - sometimes because they didn't believe it and at others because they basically said "yes, you cured him, but that's not really something you can do to with everyone". It's a dangerous procedure, but instead of looking to how it worked and seeing it as an opportunity, they shunned it.
It's interesting reading. There's a story for us somewhere. Actually, i was wondering why I don't hear about Campath much anymore. It seems after a few treatments you're cured, but that it can be dangerous. I think there's a parallel.
