Interesting article. Definitely does sound promising. Probably be even longer before it's approved in Canada.

14x4mm schwanoma left ear
75% hearing loss- 12% recognition remaining

Key word here is "MIGHT". 

The world "might" end tomorrow.

If you have an AN that a doc says needs to be treated surgically or with radiation, don't rely on a drug that "might" halt it's growth.

Just my two cents worth based on the fact that people can be in denial when they're told surgery or radiation are their only options.

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways
