There is an article about this on the old ED website.

My understanding is that this involves injecting the mice feotus with a type of protein during pregnancy.

In view of the above, this is unlikely to be of any benefit for anyone currently suffering from the condition.

In addition, I think it will be sometime before we have sufficient research to give mother's to be the confident to even consider this 'treatment' for their unborn children.

Despite the above, any progress should be considered good news and may lead to a future 'cure'.

Regards

Scott

So maybe more of a 'preventative' in unborn babies, than a cure?
