Will we ever benefit from it?

For those of you not on the UK forum, here is a personal – a bit pessimistic -comment I posted there:

[I]Thanks Ken, for posting this here. I thought I’d add and expand on my personal comments I e-mailed to you earlier.
This discovery is very fascinating from a scientific point of view. Even if scientists are satisfied with their results, a drug company would have to get interested in marketing it eventually. Then there would be endless trials followed by a lengthy approval process. Once it appears on the market in Europe, years from now, the FDA in the US may or may not look at it.

Bottom line: People like you or me in their seventies most likely will never see the benefits from this.

But nevertheless, it is very interesting for me and others who are trying to find out as much as possible about the intricacies of our immune system – just because it is so complicated and much remains to be learned about it. [/I]
