I was put off straight away by the reference to kidney damage.

Mine were damaged years ago by a virus that was magnified by a fibro flare, they havnt worked right since.

I dont think that i would take the risk of losing them altogether.

Kidney damage and expensive delivery method were weak selling points that would not have me volunteering, unless at last resort.

More research before a wide band anti viral becomes clinically viable the only good part is a number of companies think the search worthwhile.

Ah yes but they would not carry out such research if it was all in our heads.
