"Families of about 110 children treated for leukemia at University of New Mexico Hospital thought their kids were getting state-of-the-art treatment" but mortality rates were consistently higher than national averages. Since then, UNM disclosed that "substandard" treatments lessened the survival rates for the children who were not given the newer, more aggressive drugs.
