    Will you please stop undermining hype with actual facts or you'll end up substantially reducing worldwide rabies diagnoses...

      they were telling us in the early '90s that they were working on a gene-therapy cure for cystic fibrosis by inhaling a presumed vector containing the modified gene ( to get to the lungs which is organ most affected, albeit whole body is afflicted )

      15y later, i don't know if they got anywhere ( too lazy to look it up - daisy probably got info )

        Imagine an athlete named Jean Doe Ping. Not impossible.
        Take good care of yourself.

          In 2001 it was just around the corner. I believe they still have "reliable expression" problems, of course they will not admit it unless they have to. . :roll: And they do have to face reality with a phase 3 trial, no amount of their hype can make get it through if it does not work.

          (actually, I'm not sure it even got to phase 2)
