Experts are working hard to find treatments that prevent the disease or at least slow its progression...."

Very interesting article, and God bless doctors for continuing their research, and hopefully soon we will have medicine to combat and prevent these diseases. Thank you very much and God bless you.

I really hope with continued research and information passed along to us that we are able to prevent and combat such diseases.
