Drew Frawley June 15, 2020 11:29 PM Sign me up for the human trials on this one. I’ll take one for the team. guzmanchinky June 16, 2020 07:51 AM "In mice". I wonder why this is always the case and you don't see much in the way of human trials? Alan Wentnick June 16, 2020 09:09 AM My wife is age 79 she has seronegative mg She has been undergoing plasma exchange twice every three weeks for the last few years with albumin I have noticed a significant improvement in her physical and mental capabilities. This research confirms it. Mindbreaker June 16, 2020 09:29 AM @guzmanchinky What you are forgetting is that many mice don't survive or are less healthy after an experiment. It is like Russian roulette where there are 5 bullets in the 6 shooter. And consider the experiment that started this: two mice sewed together. Sound like fun?Thank you, mice!

Signguy June 16, 2020 08:39 PM So... give some to Dracula...and save the rest...hmmm. Kranky June 16, 2020 11:35 PM @byrneheart: Don't they already do something similar when undertaking a plasma donation? You donate plasma, and they at least partially replace the donated plasma with (I think) a basic saline solution. At least that's what happens when I donate... ljaques June 17, 2020 09:29 AM I think I'd like to participate in human trials, too. Guz, rats and mice are very short-lived, so scientists can get many more lifetimes of testing in a relatively short period. They're small, inexpensive to maintain, plus they're quite similar to humans in response to toxins and disease.
