Incredible new cancer treatment

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44498065/ns/health-the_new_york_times/t/dying-man-has-new-lease-life-after-his-immune-system-trained-kill-cancer/?fb_ref=.Tm9HTXlVmIM.like&fb_source=home_multiline#.Tm-x8tQ8nPp

OK so its still in experimental stage, but still what a fantastic and promising lead

The HIV thing spooks me a little bit, but if it works, good for them.

From what I understand the HIV cells are just a vehicle and then die off, leaving legit immune cells.

Big news. Let's hope it replicates and they find funding to expand the studies.

I've read a few 'cures' from natural homepathic or natural cures. One of them leans towards an induced high fever. If you noticed in the article, the guy had a severe fever, and then got better. So, did the altered cells do the job, or did they cause the fever. Then did the fever actually provide the cure?

I'm no doc, but I've always understood that fever is a result of the body's immune system kicking into high gear, not the main cause of any resultant cure.

Neither am I a doctor. From my memory, the initial 'cure' was from a doctor in Philly in the 20's or 30's. Some paitient with a high fever and cancer. Then after the fever, no more cancer. From the source I remember, this 'practice' is used in Germany by some clinics. Basically, to heat up the human body to fever temps. Obviously, the main concer is not to fry the brain. So, somehow they keep the temps under control or keep the brain cooled.
So, my premice is , did the altered T-Cells actually kill the cancer or did they just cause the fever? That is did the guys immune system attack the alien T-cells. Thus causing the fever and then put his autoimmune system into hyper drive. Then in that state, the cancer was killed off.
If so, then is there a better or less risky way to achieve this?
Tom
