That’s interesting! Thanks for sharing x

Lots of things work 'in mice' but rarely work out in the human world. Good that people of trying novel ideas but I would wait for the paper in humans first.

That's an interesting development, thanks for sharing, but as it hasn't even been trialled in human patients, so it's going to be a long time before it would be generally available.
