    Sounds like a good forward movement.

    Trials starting in 3 years.
    I will do my best to be here for it, but we long-timers are dying with regularity.
    Therefore, 3 years sounds like 10 , and reality is: by the time it goes the gamut, it likely will be 10 years.:jaw-drop:
    Used to be Judy Mikovits was in charge of new drug development. Don't know who's doing that job these days.

    From an article printed in the University of Calgary paper:

    "Santamaria’s study shows that nanoparticles (particles thousands of times smaller than a typical cell), decorated with protein targets acting as "bait" for disease-causing white blood cells, can be used to reprogram them to suppress the disease they intended to cause. This new class of drugs (nanomedicines called Navacims) exploits a naturally occurring process, previously unknown to science, that is wired into our immune system to protect us against autoimmune disease. "

    Looks like Dr Pere Santamaria already had success in curing murine type 1 diabetes with this nanoparticle approach back in 2010: see this article: Novel nanoparticle vaccine cures type 1 diabetes in mice.
