A very interesting new article about research on the treatment of Infantile Spasms.
Findings In Epilepsy Gene In Animals May Guide Treatment Directions For Infants
Very cool. I had discussed the lack of good animal models about three weeks ago with a doctor, and this is terrific news. Any PETA types probably should just not read it...yes indeed, they are using animals and mutating them to give them horrible diseases to figure out ways to treat humans.
Funny...I used to have a VERY different opinion on Animal Testing. But when you have a sick child of your own, kind of changes one's perspective. I think I might still be against it when it comes to finding a cure for baldness or figuring out how to make boobs bigger or some shit like that, but when it comes to life-saving cures to serious diseases, I'm fine with it.
