Using Electricity to Treat Arthritis and Cancer?

This is from a May 12 Medscape interview  of physicians who are trying to put together the basic science of neuroanatomy, the properties of electricity and the growing data that electricity can stimulate both cells and important chemicals of the immune system. This is not standard of care medicine but a very large amount of well constructed research is looking into clinical uses of what has been seen in preclinical studies and the lab

“Editor’s Note: As researchers gain a better understanding of the interactions between our nervous and immune systems, bioelectrical medicine is increasingly looking promising in treating numerous conditions, from pain to diabetes to possibly even cancer. Medscape recently spoke with Kevin Tracey, MD, President and CEO, The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and Senior Vice President of Research, North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, New York, about the potential of electricity-based therapy.” http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/844247?src=wnl_edit_specol&uac=39323CX
