It does seem very early days. And to be reporting on this in such a way when the study only comprised one patient seems strange. Then again, if the exposure helps bring interest to the team who worked on it - and funding - then large studies with controls if viable in some way - could produce more significant results that night lead to a better understanding of MS and other conditions perhaps.
Yeah - reporting of these sorts of this always seems a bit scary to me, but they're open about the fact that it's just one person.
