"KILLING CANCER: A Vice on HBO Special Report."

Amazing.  'Vice Special Report: Killing Cancer' - The Hollywood Reporter: "In Vice Special Report: Killing Cancer, Vice goes inside the world's most cutting-edge cancer research labs to follow the pioneering doctors and researchers who are changing the face of modern-day medicine. The exclusive in-depth special also features some of the cancer survivors who have already been saved by this revolutionary medical breakthrough...

The special specifically explores groundbreaking new treatments to fight leukemia, glioblastoma and multiple myeloma. These therapies include the use of HIV to transform a patient's immune system into a cancer-killing machine, a genetically engineered cold virus injected into a living patient's brain tumor, and millions of doses of measles infused into patients' bloodstreams. Unlike modern treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, which leave a poisonous trail of collateral damage in their wake, these viruses infect and kill cancer cells without harming healthy tissue."
