Author’s note: I believe there will be a cure for type 1 diabetes in my lifetime, and I believe it will come from exactly the sort of researcher that Dr. Faustman is—one who drives forward despite doubt from every corner. I also believe that the science and theory behind Faustman’s trials is solid. I don’t, however, think this particular BCG study is well-directed or analyzed, and I think if we want a cure, we have to do better. What follows, then, is not meant to crush anyone’s hopes for a cure, but rather to make sure that we diabetics are closely watching the science that can change our lives. Many of the statements below are my opinion only, and I am only a graduate student. Take it for what it’s worth.
