Existing drug "reboots" immune system to reverse multiple sclerosis

This is amazing news for MS sufferers, and this research also provides hope for other auto-immune diseases such as diabetes and lupus.

This is world-changing medical news, folks. We're living in an age where we can cure all manner of diseases that used to kill people. I suspect that, in the next 50 years, diseases won't kill anyone anymore.

That is, if the effects of the Singularity don't solve all our problems sooner. Or destroy us the moment after it happens.

Thanks to adammaker for the heads-up.

Best,
Chris
