    there's a company in CA called SetPoint that is studying an implant to stimulate the vagus nerve, as a treatment for inflammatory disease
    so far they have carried out a pilot study with good results, but it looks like they're not there yet. interesting nonetheless. reminds me a bit of the concept of a pacemaker...

    An implantable pulse generator = now that is different.

    Dr. Natelson should soon be beginning a study using a non invasive vagus nerve stimulator in Gulf War Syndrome.
