Www.faustmanlab.org ... new treatment for Type 1 shows promise

(Sparrow) #1

Check out Dr. Faustman's work in Boston. She is working with a treatment that is usually used for TB. She uses the drug to kill the T-cells that attack the insulin producing islets. The drug is inexpensive and readily available, so if it works for Type 1 diabetes, it would be easily available to all! Go to http://www.faustmanlab.org/ .

Dr. Fautman's research has been around for quite some time and has generated it's fair share of controversy.  I think a lot of us are keeping an eye on it –thank you so much for posting this link!!!  If you see or hear anything else, please do let us know!
