A source of hope for cancer patients

There's a fascinating report on so-called spontaneous regressions or remissions of cancer in a British newspaper.

Generally speaking, about half of these regressions follow an infection and/or a high fever. Observation of this phenomenon led to development of the fields of (a) cancer immunology (such as Coley's toxins) and (b) hyperthermia (also called thermotherapy or oncothermia).

It is a source of great hope to cancer patients.
