Tad Davison  asked the Naked Scientists:
   I've been listening to the news of the new cancer treatment breakthrough announced today in the United States.  For the moment, it is said to be good at curing some types of leukaemia.  Is there any chance your team could give a more in-depth explanation of how it works, and where it might go from here?
 
Regards
 
Tad 
What do you think?
