Progress reported in treatment of child with parasite

Posted By on Wed, Jul 31, 2013 at 1:14 PM

Good update from CNN, posted here by Channel 11, on Kali Hardig, the 12-year-old girl being treated for the presence of a usually-fatal parasite that attacks the brain.

An experimental drug may have successfully fought the dangerous amoeba, CNN reports. But she remains in critical condition with the hospital working to manage swelling of the brain and after effects of the infection.

Only one person in the U.S. has survived the disease in 50 years.
