THE WAY FORWARD 

North Shore-L.I.J.'s Dr. Kevin Tracey writes the cover story in the latest Scientific American. He looks at bioelectronic medicine and the impacts it may have on treating a variety of ailments including cancer and diabetes. “The use of nerve-stimulating electronic devices to treat inflammation and reverse disability is laying the foundation for a new discipline called bioelectronic medicine. It is being tested in clinical studies of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases. It is based on a deceptively simple concept of harnessing the body’s natural reflexes to develop an array of effective, safe and economical alternatives to many pills and injectable drugs. By precisely targeting the biological processes underlying disease, this nerve-stimulating technology should help avoid the troublesome side effects of many drugs.” http://bit.ly/1JEyxx6
