If that turned out to be true and literal, it would eliminate most of the surgeries. Mabe this is the real thing, we can always hope, might not help many of us currently, but it would be nice, if in our lifetime, something as simple as that really, really works. Least the article gave hope to that thought. Thanks.

Here is another article about the phase II trials. I think it is the same drug. This really is exciting news. Just wish they could move the research along a little faster.
