American donors put faith (and dollars) in TAU cancer research

He remarks, A-T is a very complex disease, involving neuronal degeneration, immunodeficiency, extreme radiation sensitivity and a striking predisposition to cancer. It was clear from the start that understanding A-T would open a window to many medical problems, not the
