    If this is totally legit I can only think it would have hit the Wise Young radar, and be plastered the world over as some JustinmSmollett rant would. Without better trial oversight or even third party review this is little more than clever editing bullshitt after a desperate market like a 1900's seance scam. You'd got to believe that true breakthrough recovery would be front page news.

    This isn't a cure and they aren't talking about it as such. The mainstream press like to overstate stuff like this, but thats not the fault of the medical community.

    Who knows why they have chosen to promote this now, maybe because they have done a few of them and there is a good level of success.

    In terms of peer reviewed research they have published many papers on this:

    This kind of thing has also been done in the US before,

    The fact that this study was reported in the respected British medical journal, The Lancet, lends credence to it. In today's world of short news cycles, I'm actually not surprised that it didn't make the front pages - and sadly, we are a limited population group, so while it would be major news to us, the wider world is focused elsewhere. I've seen plenty of cancer breakthroughs - especially individually tailored chemo regimens with high success rates for previously intractable disease - that amount to a blip in the health pages of news sites, and then they're gone.
