    Interesting article and cause enough for cautious optimism. I only say cautious because over the last ten years I have been dealing with this there seems to be a revolutionary breakthrough every few months. While, an important discovery, I think that we need to be aware that it may take many years more research to capitalize on it.

    If something comes to fruition from this, it would be wonderful.

    It really would be wonderful, but there are never any miracle cures. I am optimistic, but as GuerillaSodomite said, it always takes a lot of time to do the proper research before any good can really come from it.

    Hope this pushes research forward to the next big step... the vaccine!

    that's a good news! If they have a successful test case with the animal, it's gonna be interesting who will be the first human to try the method

    I don't know if it's just how the article is written but it just seems to make sense. But any hope is worth holding on to.

    Interesting read. I haven't read the official journal paper with their work, but it does sound promising.

    Looks to me like any future treatments arising from this bit of information will resemble cancer treatment, as they'd have to target and kill the body's own cells. I'm hopeful, though, and this seems like a promising find.
