Turning to 'last resort' cure for H1N1 flu

Robert Moore of Tuscaloosa was kept alive by machines in the intensive care unit for part of November and all of December — his diagnosis: severe pneumonia and the H1N1 flu. Despite being on a respirator on full force at DCH Regional Medical Center, Moore's organs weren't responding, and his oxygen levels wouldn't stay up. There was a last option, if Moore was going to survive, doctors told his wife Rhonda: He could be taken to UAB for a “last resort” treatment that could save his life.
