I watch the episode. They have only done brain cancer trials in live people. They are still messing around in the lab for the other cancers. Chemo doesn't cross the blood-brain barrier. I think that is why they are running first trials on brain stuff.
There are a ton of trials either started or due to come up soon on using the immune system to treat breast, prostate, liver, and pancreatic. That may be another reason they started with the brain.
The vaccine I took to get my immune system to attack my Her2 cancer cells is currently in stage 3 trials and should be on the market within 2 years.
