About a third of all victims died, and others could not sleep and so lost their lives as well. Still others fell into a deep coma in which they spent the rest of their lives. Ultimately, their long illness cost them a great deal because they never grew beyond the time almost fifty years before when they caught the disease. Most passed away in the years following their treatment, but they taught doctors much about chemical therapy and gave new insights into how the human brain works.
