Doctors at a hospital in London claim that they have used genetically engineered immune cells to completely cure two babies who were diagnosed with leukemia.
The doctors say both 16-month-old Layla Richards and an unnamed 11-month-old baby have gone for at least 10 months without showing any symptoms of the deadly condition.
They also report having used this new technique of introducing the genetically engineered immune cells to the babies' bodies to fight the cancer cells after traditional chemotherapy failed.
Layla's parents Lisa and Ashleigh Richards are thankful for the cheaper and revolutionary treatment they say has saved their daughter's life.
