Cure Coming Soon

Well that's great to hear. I'm not really sure if his research itself will be used for a cure. But the research can provide others interested in cures more information about the virus.

I'd rather that money be going directly towards a cure but I guess it's still good that they want to have a better understanding of the virus. Thanks for sharing this ntdc.
