With all the research going on, we all await that magical "cure" so we won't have to discuss this beast again.  So be it today, with the study of the antibody F77 bouncing around the internet.  While this particular antibody may not be the break through we all desire, the fact that all the research is going on as we speak is gratifying in that if some of us have relapses in the future, there may be something new out there to help.  We truly live in a good time.

Hi Hawk!
Always good seeing you. My buddy at the InfoLink wrote a nice piece on this.
