Food for thought, but with a bias. (1)

I agree that this needs to be approached with caution, but I wonder why the article speaks only of two failures. I get the impression the program is larger than just two patients, so what happened to the others? Did they also meet with tragic consequences? Without full disclosure of all failures and successes, it's impossible to accurately assess the results. We're left with a horror story told with cherry-picked data.
