Non-Toxic Peptides Could Put Lupus In Remission!

This is very exciting news! There's a new article out about non-toxic peptides that could put Lupus into remission, and even contribute towards creating a Lupus vaccine and maybe even a cure someday! 

Here's a quote from the article:

"We found that the peptides could not only generate regulatory T-cells, but also that they block and reduce autoantibody production to almost baseline levels in the blood cultures from people with active lupus," said lead researcher Syamal Datta, M.D., a professor of medicine-rheumatology and microbiology-immunology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine.
It would be so nice to think that someday in the future I may not have to take medicine daily!  
Praying that this treatment continues to be successful in the clinical trials and is available to Lupus patients like myself soon!
