Evidence linking fevers/infections with tumor regression

Throughout history, physicians have observed and documented the clear links between infection and regression of cancer. In a significant number of cases, the regression is not just temporary but lasts for decades (essentially what we call a "cure"). Dr. William Coley was certainly not the first to have encountered this seemingly miraculous effect. He was certainly bitten by the "coley bug" when he personally tracked down Mr. Zola and verified that the impossible had occurred. 
This dramatic, and seemingly miraculous effect, is real. So real that two distinguished surgeons at UC Davis recently went so far as to infect their terminal brain cancer patients with probiotics (live bacteria) in order to try to cure them. We're talking year 2012, not 100 years ago where some might say medicine was still "undeveloped".
The surgeons had the right idea but if they had studied Dr. Coley's work, they would have learned that Dr. Coley himself abandoned the use of live bacteria very early in the game. I guess their inability to obtain Coley's Toxins and the "nothing to lose" situation for their patients behooved their consciences to go ahead with it. Regardless of whether you think they were reckless in doing so, the fact remains that these two intelligent, reputable, modern-day physicians would not have proceeded with such a risky move if they were not so convinced of the very real "hope of a cure".
In this article, I will strive to compile a list of resources for you that clearly document the irrefutable effect that the "correct" type of infection can regress cancers of all types (both carcinomas and sarcomas):
  1. Disappearance of Ewing's sarcoma following bacterial infection : A case report
    A Ewing's sarcoma patient in Japan with primary in the left pelvis and multiple spinal metastases contracts a bacterial infection at the surgery site. During this period of infection, the multiple bone metastases nearly disappeared. 9 years later, the patient is alive with NO EVIDENCE of tumor.
  2. Spontaneous regression of pancreatic cancer
    A 50-year-old male presented with a history of weight loss, anorexia and discomfort after meals. Oncology workup revealed pancreatic adenocarcinoma (T2N1M0, stage IIIb). A two week regimen of radiotherapy combined with seven weeks of gemcitabine failed to alter the progress of the disease. However, a subsequent perforated duodenal ulcer was followed by severe peritonitis, fever, and tumor regression.
