Mohammed Majeed was sentenced once already- -back in August. But his attorneys convinced the court to reconsider the penalty. Majeed himself got to testify again- -dis-avowing comments he made at the earlier hearing that suggested *he* was the victim in this case.

Majeed said he took full responsibility for killing Chris Hanes over a 575-dollar security deposit. While the judge did reduce the sentence, he made a special condition once Majeed has done his time.

Lung cancer is one of the deadliest forms of the disease.
Once it takes hold, many traditional treatments just can't stop it.
But new experimental drugs are showing promise in treating terminal patients, including one that actually infects cancer cells with the common cold.

((PKG
SMOKING IS THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF LUNG CANCER..... A DISEASE THAT KILLS MORE PEOPLE EACH YEAR THAN BREAST, COLON, AND PROSTATE CANCER COMBINED. AND SOME FEAR THE TREATMENT MORE THAN THE DIAGNOSIS.

(SOT-Dr. Mark Block/Memorial Cancer Institute)

"Historically we treated cancer with surgery, cutting it out. Radiation therapy--frying it with Xrays, or chemotherapy--basically poisonous drugs."
BUT NOW THERE IS HOPE ON THE HORIZON FOR LUNG CANCER PATIENTS THANKS TO AN EXPERIMENTAL DRUG CALLED ADVEXIN.

(SOT-Dr. Mark Lewis/Memorial Cancer Institute)

"What's great about this is that it really combines very non-toxic therapies."
ADVEXIN FIGHTS CANCER CELLS BY GETTING THEM SICK WITH THE COMMON COLD.
(gfx)IN MANY PATIENTS--A CANCER FIGHTING GENE, CALLED P-53,

MALFUNCTIONS..... ALLOWING THE DISEASE TO SPREAD. ADVEXIN FIRST INFECTS THE CELLS WITH THE COLD CAUSING THEM TO LOSE STRENGTH. THAT ALLOWS THE DEFECTIVE P-53 GENE TO BE REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE.... AND THE CELLS REVERT BACK TO NORMAL.

(SOT-Dr. Mark Lewis/Memorial Cancer Institute)

"This in effect renders cancer more of a chronic disease. You don't cure the cancer, but the patient can live with it, and not die from it."

(STANDUP: Dr. Sean Kenniff/CBS NEWS)

But Advexin isn't the only promising lung cancer drug on the horizon. Here at the Sylvester Cancer Center in Miami, they're using an experimental lung cancer vaccine."
DURING THE EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE PROCEDURE, LUNG CANCER CELLS GROWN IN A LAB, ARE INJECTED UNDER THE SKIN. THAT TRIGGERS AND TRAINS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM TO ATTACK THE CANCER. IN SOME CASES, LIKE THIS ONE--THE LUNG CANCER DISAPPEARED. THE VACCINE WAS TRIED ON 17 TERMINALLY ILL PATIENTS, AND IT SAVED SOME OF THEIR LIVES. :18

(SOT- Dr. Luis Raez/Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center)

"We were happy to find that in six of them, the tumors stopped growing."
BOTH ADVEXIN AND THE VACCINE ARE EXPERIMENTAL.... SO MORE TESTING IS NEEDED, BUT BOTH COULD BE AVAILABLE IN A FEW YEARS.... GIVING HOPE THAT ONE DAY LUNG CANCER CAN BE KILLED.... INSTEAD OF BEING THE KILLER. DOCTOR SEAN KENNIFF, CBS NEWS.
