this sounds very hopeful and like some said vindicating for some who may have been dismissed in past.

however i didnt quite catch what the treatments are? immune suppressants?
sjogrens, cervical stenosis, bulging cervical discs 4 level, DDS, DJD, emerging vertigo, cfs, fms, gerd, plantar fascitis, corneal erosion, some other stuff :)
not trained in medical field so just share my experience and opinions as a consumer and lay researcher trying to get more well-ness

Interesting article. I wish they would have given details of the immunotherapy used that led to such pain relief.
