This is great news. I hate cancer. I lost my mother and sister in law due to cancer and I'm sure many of you have lost a loved one too. Would be
great if I get a chance to see this disease wiped out in my lifetime
It would seem very few people seem to see these cures through, after the initial headlines the press stops reporting the powers that be never seem to
be interested and everything goes back to the very sad status quo
Check out vice's documentary...Killing Cancer..very frustrating..similiar viruses used to kill cancer with above 90% sucess rate..apparently after 911
this doctor's funding dried up...it is remarkable and sadly old news

Granted you just took the article headline but it's a bit of a misnomer, at this point in the trials, because the article and treatment aren't about
curing cancer holistically but rather curing bladder cancer. Still a long way to go from it being a possible cure of one type cancer to curing cancer
as a whole.
All the same anytime a possible victory looms against the great equalizer in life then that's a good thing.
My Father passed away when he was 52 from Pancreatic Cancer which is essentially a death sentence in Men so I hope the scientists of the world keep
looking for a way to eradicate cancer.
I would think they used CRISPR, and probably for this as well.
As far as "it being a long way to go for other cancers" I wouldn't think so. The main problem I would think, or a big one, is just having to tailor
each virus to a patient's specific cancer. Same with immunotherapy, the specificity required is expensive.
If that's the case, genetics play a larger role in future commerce, as drugs may have to be developed with the patients DNA specficially for that
patient, which renders mass consumer drugs usuless concerning these specific cancers.
