New treatment that tricks the immune system

Just read an interesting article on a possible new treatment for MS. In a nutshell, it re-establishes immune tolerance to whatever protein it is trying to attack.  In the case of MS - myelin.  The beauty of it is that it apparently does not effect any other immune function.  Additionally, the technique could potentially be used for other autoimmune diseases.  Has anybody heard of this?  Here's the link,  New MS Treatment 'Tricks' Immune System
