    Wow @iserbrown how fantastic is that trial. Pretty amazing and I reckon you'd have to be pretty unlucky to get any burns from the one treatment.  Excellent!

    I have read about this before. Wonderful. I guess this wouldn't be suitable if lymph nodes were involved.

    It's an international trial with 50 lucky Australian participants early stage who will be monitored for 10 years.
