It also has to be noted that it was one death in a small group. Any blip will screw the percentages. eg if the cohort was only 4 and this same unfortunate person was in the group, it would of been 25%. I am not saying the death should be ignored, simply that it should not be taken at face value without further understanding of the specific case; and similarily the question should be asked how the others managed to live.SarahLonglands wrote:But 4% of people in the trial died as a result of the treatment..................arah

This death was directly attributed to the chemo and is significant. The various reports on this therapy all state it is quite risky. At this time, this is basically an option of last resort. There are other, safer ways to 'reboot' the immune system.
