Posted:That's exciting.

It'll be interesting to see if they can figure out a treatment based on it.

Pimecrolimus and Tacrolimus are currently leading-edge therapy. Kinda brutish, in my opinion...

Doc: I have never been tempted with the whole, tampering of the immune system thing, i wonder if any new drugs would be a similar thing. I wouldn't be surprised if we have to wait a good few years for anything too. Hopefully we wont hurt anyone in the process
