Major News on the Marfan front

Apparently, a blood pressure drug called Cozaar actually *reduces* the size of the aorta in lab mice with Marfan syndrome, an effect compared to which other blood pressure medicines are no better than placebos (I was part of the original study testing beta blockers on kids with Marfan syndrome).
We’re talking, mortality-wise, about a virtual *cure*, with no ethical questions involved!
