Here's a link to the NYT regarding the treatment. This is not the one about the young girl but about another patient....same treatment. Looks like there can be long term problems because the treatment targets B cells and it kills both healthy and cancer b cells. Hopefully, they'll be able to sort it all out.

If you cannot get to this link, Huffington Post has a story on it also.

Here's a good article on the same treatment. Gives a good overview of what they've done.
