    Treg treatment?

    Does anyone here know about this? For us it will be too late. Hopefully, hopefully it can help someone else. It seems it already might. But I sure don't want to spread any rumors.

    My partner is using a surface pro (newest version) with the commercial tobii eyegaze bar for gamers(?) and it works - with a few kinks here and there.
