These findings could benefit tens of thousands of people--just in the US
McColley, who also happens to be a professor of pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, went on to say, "these groundbreaking findings will benefit around 15,000 patients in the U.S. alone." Needless to say, that is a lot of people. Bringing new treatments is important regardless of whether it helps one person or a thousand, but it is very positive that so many people who would otherwise need help are receiving this sort of assistance.
