> Yes! There is a potential cure for this disease: Neural stem cell transplantation. I'm waiting to be a human test subject. A member of HCF (Brad's email is;, and I, are conversing on this subject. He explained to me that, after the HCF conference, next year, there should be a place providing human neural tissue transplantations.
> However, if you're going to wait for the "gene therapy", rather than the stem cell transplantation, you'll probably be waiting several more years just for the results of the Human Genome Project. It will be a few more years after discovering the chromosomes responsible for the complex disease, known as bipolar disorder, to be treated with a gene therapy technique. Another minor hitch in this therapy being immediately available, is the uncertainty of an appropriate vector, with which the transfected DNA may be introduced into the patient.

Hi Nancy,

Aren't you the mad scientist? Just the kind of person I like to keep in touch with. No one is smarter than a crazy scientist. Science doesn't interest me, but god, getting better does. Yes, keep fishing and let me and, probably a collective bulletin board, US informed of your catches of the day. I'm ticking off that little box that says 'notify me of later follow-ups to this thread' now. You just gave me quite a bit of hope.


ps you sound pretty good.
