Default Fight Cancer with....HIV?

I love science

US doctors beat leukaemia in 7-year-old with modified HIV | News.com.au

However, some of the side effects of the treatment working are you fever spiking to 105 degrees and your BP going all over the map.

This is truly amazing. Outcomes like this make me wonder whether there is any limit to the creativity/ingenuity that modern science is capable of generating. The answer appears to be a resounding 'no'. Awesome!

I wonder if it only works on blood cancers or if it would work on all cancers?

I'd imagine it could be expanded to anything that your body uses T-cells to fight.
