Natural kill cell technology to stop cancer gets licensed (w/video)

Our bodies contain Natural Killer (cells - an army that stops cancers and viruses before they can make us sick. A researcher has created a nanoparticle that increases the number of these killers 10,000-fold in the lab and her new technology has generated a licensing agreement that is expected to accelerate the therapy's path to clinical trials.
