SEATTLE, Wash. (Metro) -- At least some doctors think a new cancer treatment that uses the body's immune system as a weapon might just be the long sought after cure for a form of childhood leukemia.
"Seattlepi.com" reports that a clinical trial will start today at Seattle Children's Hospital with enrollment of patients.
Four other American hospitals are participating in the trial.
The treatment uses a disabled form of the HIV virus.
There's a press conference on the study set for this morning.
