Scientists have converted cancer cells into immune cells.

Sometimes accidents happen for the best as this article reveals! But this accident is amazing. Anything we can do in our battle against cancer should be lauded.

After trying to find ways to prevent cancerous cells from dying during experiments, scientists from Stanford have discovered that it is possible to force leukemia cells to mature into a type of immune cell that, ironically, may help the body clear up other tumor cells. The study has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
