Treating Kidney Cancer

NPR's Jon Hamilton reports on a new treatment for advanced kidney cancer. The treatment involves replacing the patient's own immune cells with cells from a healthy person. So far, it's been used on 19 patients, and more than half have improved. Researchers say the technique may offer hope for people with other forms of cancer as well.
