The World Transformed returns after a brief hiatus. Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss two recent news stories that indicate tremendous progress in treating cancer by building human immune response. Most interestingly, these results are being achieved with the help of some modified -- but otherwise pretty nasty -- viruses.

Cancer cured via measles vaccine

Are we approaching a truning point in the fight against cancer? Will future breakthroughs be achieved by manipulating the human immune system with viruses?

Tune in and explore.
