Your comment was innovative but it is often the case that the mindset
of oncologists is to shoot first and ask later.  Thye will for the
foreseeable
future want to use chemo and radiation.   That is the gold standard for
now.
I am not being critical, by the way.  This being the case,  your idea will
not be able to be tested easily since those prior treatments with
either/or 
(chemo ,  radiation)  will leave the immune system of the patient at a
very
low level or even "shut off".
It will be possible if some Doctors begin to believe in thedata for this
new 
strategem and hold of using chemo and radiation unitl the immunology
approach
can FIRST be tried.
