Shucks, all I got was an error message and couldn't get to the article. Is the site for members only?
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

that is a very interesting article. So amazing how it took very rich parents with a son of crohn's to have to pay for the trial to happen. Hopefully they can keep moving forward with this progress.

Wow! Thanks for sharing....could this mean we all could be living in a biohazard community someday? I mean the patients had to be isolated during treatment so nothing escaped right. Maybe they will send us all to the space station! Hmmmm, toilet facilities would have to receive major modification!

It looks like a better way of suppressing the immune response that the usual big pharma drug. I wonder if they have any history of recurrences yet? If I understand, the bacteria are all gone in a few days, so what happens then?
