Saw this article and thought it may be of interest. New drug that shows some promise for treatment but so far only in the lab.

Hi Zufus,
 
I agree. There is so much "in the pipeline" as they say but it never seems to come to fruition. I told my radiation oncologist that sometimes I wished I were a mouse as it seems we are quite successful at curing all manner of ills in mice. Never knew we were so interested in the health of mice. tongue
 
At least someone is looking so I suppose I should be grateful for that at least.
