Thank you for your response.  I do not have that information, but I'll
pass that along to him.  Also, I neglected to mention a significant
symptom in my original article.  In addition to fatigue and weakness, 
he also becomes numb, and feels the "tingling" you feel like when your
foot goes to sleep.  Again, this symptom and the rest are relieved with
a plasma transfusion to reduce the protein levels in his blood, and
an infusin of albumin.  Thanks,

John
