1. Kathryn Gustafson Kathryn Gustafson United States says:

    Since the 1970's, I have been hearing of this cure, and that cure, just on the horizon. The money that is being spent to fund all of these different testings is astronomical. All end up with the same end: Nothing. Usually, you don't even hear an update on what the outcome was (why it was vacated, etc). How disheartening it is to keep seeing this year after year, decade after decade, as your sight slowly fades away. I used to go to clinical testings in Chicago to help these scientists, but I quit doing that simply because I never received an outcome report, nor did I ever see anything come out of the studies. Call me cynical, but this had me on the edge of my seat reading this article. I kept thinking "how soon can I be there to volunteer". Then to realize the date was from 2004 and so many people have been on here asking for an update.

    Same old news, different decade. It is very frustrating! Why don't they just take all of that money, split it amongst the ones that are suffering and we'll just let you know plain and simple: there is no cure and probably never will be.
