For the first time since a fifth-century Greek physician gave the name "cancer" (karkinos) to a deadly disease first described in Egyptian texts, a remarkable series of events has brought us to the brink of a cure, thanks in large part to a new ability to more efficiently harness the power of the human immune system.
