A Significant Breakthrough in MND Research?

This sounds like a significant breakthrough and of course its good news but it will take 3 to 5 years to develop a drug and prepare a trial, 2 years for the trial and 2 to 3 years to get approval if it works. I guess that missing a cure by 10 years is less depressing than missing one by 10 months but nontheless it was a somewhat bitter-sweet experience reading this news.

Hi Steve ! I felt the same way if I`am honest -too late for my brother andrew but he does have a son-so if it is an inherited faulty gene- well at least there is hope for the future generations of our family.take care x

Good to hear of some progress being made, even though it may end up of little practical significance for coming up with a cure.......
Hope you enjoyed the holiday -are you home now then?
