Soon-Shiong’s Promotion Of ‘Breakthrough’ Cancer Therapy Raises Questions

(STAT) Mar 27, 2017 - The emotional video tells of a patient with blood cancer who tries an experimental therapy involving “natural killer” cells. “NEW BREAKTHROUGH HELPS PATIENTS KILL CANCER” the banner headline declares as the patient, wiping away tears, covers her face with her hands and murmurs, “It’s really good news.”
