Autoimmune Research

Stem Cell Transplant Benefits Severe Lupus - what an exciting possibility! 

Sometimes it seems like the drug companies are coming up with more expensive treatments, but there isn’t much progress made towards a cure.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for the drugs that enable me to get out of bed in the morning, and walk (even if people watching me ask if I’m sore, or if I hurt my feet.  At least I’m on my feet).  It’s just that I’d rather have a cure than a lifetime of medications that cost thousands of dollars every month.

It’s wonderful to see visible progress in the search for a cure of an autoimmune disease, even in a small, preliminary study!

  1. Ah…a cure…now that’s a nice idea! :) Guess we have to know a definitive cause first! More research dollars to autoimmune diseases. They impact multitudes more people than cancer and heart disease which get the bulk of research dollars these days.
