GOLD and leukemia treatment?

Someone mentioned about some "therapy" that involved gold dust, that attaches to leukemia cells, which are then radiated..........and then destroyed.
Sounds farfetched to me, but hey, you never know!

Anyone?

Wow! You are quick Marlene!

Actually, I saw that but it looks like it's in the very early stages of development....

Unfortunately, gold has been implicated in a few cases of AA:
