Great question and thanks for posting about Rett Syndrome and helping raise awareness!

In the experiments on mice (1 1/2 yr ago) they silenced the MECP2 in the mice (with insertion of a "stop cassette"), and then un-silenced it to see if the effects would be permanent like they believed they would be. So the mice didn't actually have Rett Syndrome and in RS there is no "stop cassette" built into it to turn on again. So the real outcome of this study showed that once a cure/treatment is found, these girls could possibly be normal again and not neurologically damaged permanently...this is amazing in itself but doesn't mean we are any closer to a cure.

Liberalism is currently curable with large amounts of knowledge in most mammals.
