Hi Lyon,

I think the point of the article is that it is not the eradication of the immunesystem (improvements started 2 years after removing the immunesystem), but the introduction of the bonemarrow stem cells.
If this is truely the case then RevImmune will not do the trick.

Very interesting stuff, I had not heard they were doing that. I had a very close friend and relative who had a bone marrow transplant and I knew how this stuff worked since I was a kid. I am surprised I had not thought of this before. A very scary thing to go through for sure. Hope the results are great for those people.
