diseases show that boosting levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) or its
receptor activity selectively destroys autoreactive T cells, suggesting a
possible cure for the diseases, investigators here reported.

To all Dr faustman supporters , you could help free speed up the funding of Dr. Faustman's most promising research:

A) to reverse type 1 diabetes
B) at cheap price (generic BCG)
c) with the safest approach (long history of safety use)

How: You can join the lobby group newsletter totally free at http://www.hdiabetes.com
It's free to join. We will be stronger in group.

Spread the word about the lobby group. We will fund the research fast.

Thank you

Dude.

An anonymous reply to a two year old post soliciting to a 3rd party way of supporting the lab.

Seriously.

I am all for supporting research and suggest doing it directly with the lab. Way less sketchy.
