Using the process to develop dopamine-producing neurons with an identical genetic profile to each mouse being treated allowed scientists to significantly improve the neurological performance of the diseased animals, without provoking any evidence of immune system rejection.

"This is the first ...

I'm being bad

I decided to stop taking my Rebif. Tonight will be my first missed shot. :twisted:

I packed up my auto injector and supplies and stuffed them in the very back of my closet. I truly hope to never ...
