F., I'm not naive enough to waste my time searching through a mountain
of b.s. for "enhancing" antibodies when medical pathologists who have
just finished their board exams(successfully I might add) don't recall
even a question on their exam or reference to such terms.  Can't be
very important now can it? Ever read the book by Stephen Hawking, "A
Brief History of Time".  Make any sense to you, big boy?  Understand
String Theory, smart guy?  Or, is it more likely that you spend your
entire life smelling like the lab you grow old in and don't have a
clue about anything outside of your lab coat.  Page 10, first
