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.

I'm just thinking , why only 24 people?
After 14 years !!!
It's good that this group has been monitored but the study goes back to early 2000's. What else has been done regarding this study?
I think a similar procedure is done for cancer. It's worth considering their studies.
I'm glad the case has been reopened.
Perhaps United States will do trials similar to this as well.

"It also has to be noted that it was one death in a small group. Any blip will screw the percentages."

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.

I NEVER said it was insignificant nor discounted the risks, or the seriousness of the occurrence. Simply pointed out the mathematics.

Yes we know cureOrbust. I don't think Elliot's comment was targeting you.

So what other ways are there to reboot the immune system?
