  1. I love that they have promise of treating this disease, but hate the initial treatment is amputation. :-(

    1. Yeah, not much of a treatment option, is it? Effective ... but seriously ... There are many treatments in the pipeline but what we need is a cure or an effective prevention.

      Mind you, the stereotactic radiosurgery is a option to consider.
