Oh thank God, this is brilliant! I was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease; I am now 39 and almost totally bedridden. I used to be an athlete. Every system in my body seems to be breaking down. I went to a mitochondrial geneticist at Duke and asked him my prognosis and he just stared at me and said nothing!! This is a very scary disease to say the least, and having no treatment and no hope is the worst part. Thank you Mayo and Associates for giving us some hope! Where do I sign up? Is this at the clinical stages yet?
