Boy in the Bubble Update
, among others, is running an article about
the apparent cure of "severe combined immunodeficiency disease" by gene therapy
. This totally knocks my socks off. Basically, these scientists found a bug in the DNA program of these kids -- and fixed it! (Unless they didn't really, in which case, never mind.) This is the same disease that the "Boy in the Bubble" had, so instead of living that sort of life, they're apparently as healthy and normal as you or I. Well, in reference to
my previous "Boy in the Bubble" article
, score one for the 20th century and progress.
