A possible cure for "bubble boy"
Researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital are optimistic after their treatment appears to be working on a toddler born without an immune system. Jameson Golliday, who has "Bubble Boy Syndrome," is out of the hospital and now at home in a sterile environment while his white blood cells generate completely. Ann Thompson, in "Focus on Technology," explains the treatment that could eventually be the standard of care for this very rare and serious disease.
