Yes it's being done at the Freeman hospital in Newcastle but in conjunction with the betchets center in Liverpool early signs are good regarding my ulcers only a couple of small one in the last couple of weeks most relief I've had in over a year other symptoms are just the same but it's early days I'm very hopeful of a agood result I know there isn't a cute but some relief would be great

I have been getting this all so in Ninewells Dundee I’m on my 6 dose and it’s made wonders to my life in such short time my walking sticks now lie in cupboard instead of my hands but lately my mouth burning more it’s like I’ve drank really hot tea but ulcer have calmed down and really bad pain in my leg bones not muscles but my bone it’s really sore and when it comes nothing makes it go I hope you have the successful time like I have on this good luck
