Date:12/8/2008

ribed the first successful use of a human patient's cloned infection-fighting T cells as the sole therapy to put advanced melanoma tumors into long-term remission. A type of white blood cell was removed from a 52-year-old man who had metastatic Stage 4 melanoma; more such cells were grown in the lab, then infused into the patient. Two months later the man's tumors were gone and he remained disease-free two years later, when he was last checked. Yee and other Center researchers are now expanding clinical trials that use T-cell therapy to treat advanced tumors.

At the Saturday night Gala, patrons also bid for exclusive auction packages including a zero-gravity flight with space and science celebrities including Bonnie Dunbar and Charles Simonyi and Dr. Hartwell, which sold at $7,500 per person for a total of $157,500; an Italian sojourn at Villa Madalena, $20,000; a U.S. Open package, $16,000; VIP tickets to the Country Music Awards, $14,000; and an exclusive July 4 fireworks party on a rooftop deck at the Hutchinson Center's South Lake Union campus, $13,000.

The evening's festivities included the presentation of the Grace Heffernan Arnold Guild's 2008 Distinguished Community Service Award to the Swanson family.
