About Glenn’s Treatment in Germany

Silvia Lightner, Glenn’s Mom, sent us this link from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which “does a pretty good job at explaining the treatment Glenn is doing in Germany and the history of it.”

The article, “Fever, Pyrogens and Cancer” begins:

“The observation, that cancer patients who experienced a feverish period after surgery survived significantly longer than patients without fever, and the fact that spontaneous tumor remission was observed mostly after a fever period, was the rationale for the artificial induction of fever (“fever therapy”).”

We all wish Glenn the very best of luck with this new treatment!
