    Lymphoma is already one of the cancers with the highest cure rate, but this is still great news. I only skimmed through the article for now, but it sounds really interesting and I hope they may find a way to use this on other cancers that aren't of the blood. Although, the side effects sound somewhat scary they aren't as bad as many of the chemos side effects. Essentially it sounds like it will work much the same way a bone marrow transplant does, just much less invasive.

    Yeah. The interesting thing isn't that it cures a curable cancer, but that it does it in a non-specific way.

    If cancer is to be cured, it either has to be done cancer by cancer (and sub-type by sub-type), or a larger, universal cure that works in a broad way. The latter would save decades off of a cure and save millions of lives.
