Gene Therapy Spurs Leukemia Hope
By RON WINSLOW
Researchers reported fresh evidence Wednesday that using gene therapy to manipulate the immune system is emerging as a promising new strategy in the fight against cancer.
Five patients with a lethal leukemia achieved complete and rapid remissions after the treatment, in which cells from their own immune systems were genetically altered to specifically attack the disease.
While the study was small, researchers were impressed that the cancer was eradicated in all five patients. In one patient, all evidence of the cancer was gone eight days after treatment.

We break the 2 month blogging drought to bring you an internet happy dance:
We had our first contact with another NGLY1 family!
On the first day of spring, we couldn't have asked for a better sign of new life or hope. :)
While we have our reasons, as an apology for not blogging, here are some photos from the phone.
Bertrand's new haircut elicited lots of thumbs-ups and fist bumps from guys!
...and death threats directed at the clipper wielder from the women in his life.
Needless to say, we may be watching our backs for his next hair cut. ;)
We call him the Buddy Lama. :)
He is our teacher. He exudes peace and enlightenment.
Standing, holding his own bottle, AND being ridiculously good looking all at the same time!
This pose is more of a Sergeant Buddy.
You can actually believe he weighs 51 lbs in this picture.
Bertrand T. Might, the Most Interesting Man in the World.
We're already not cool enough to be seen in public with her.
Making her mother proud. :)
The essence of Victoria.
