Dr. Rosenberg added, "This is highly experimental and we're just learning how to do this, but potentially it is applicable to any cancer".

Chemotherapy is one of the most common treatments for cancer, but a new study shows people diagnosed with one type may be able to skip it. But the researchers who conducted this new controlled experiment found that chemotherapy provided no additional benefit over hormone treatments alone.
