101 Year Old Vaccine for TB Possible Cure for Type 1 Diabetes?
Remember Q#1010? "Vaccines [Not All]" (bad). The doctor here has had no help from Big Pharma. In fact, they've tried to discredit her work. Over the target?
"This month, Denise Faustman’s lab at Massachusetts General Hospital (“MGH”) started a new chapter of its decades-long investigation of the Bacillus Calmette–Guerin (“BCG”) vaccine in type 1 diabetes (“T1D”) patients. The lab is now actively recruiting adolescent patients (ages 12 to 17) who have had T1D for at least two years to receive the vaccine in the hopes that it can restore their body’s ability to produce insulin. Over the years, we’ve followed Dr. Faustman’s research into the effects of BCG on T1D patients closely. This report will briefly survey the history of this research as context for their two current trials, each of which has the potential to be a Practical Cure if the research results bear out.
