Just some more info from that press release on 30/10/00. They have been testing at Londons University College Hospital with destroying the white blood cells that create rogue antibodies that attack healthy joints. When the cells are wiped out the body produces new ones that do not produce antibodies. So far 20 long term sufferers produced astonashing results, all the patients had failed to respond to other treatments.these patients seemed to have returned to almost normal life. Only 2 showed no signs of improvement.
The results have been revealed today to a scienctific conference in Atlanta Georgia, an international trial has been launched.
I woke to this news saying they have found a cure for RA (which I have) with complete amazament. I f anyone has more news get in touch.
