Dr . Akifullah while describing his research said that a patient who had gone through several surgeries for the treatment of Arthritis was injected with only one treatment of the chemical through W(188)/ Re (188) Generator and the patient had shown total relief from pain within 28 days while the knee mobility was also seen as very significant.
