hmm, i am very curious as to how (and whether) you, or someone else, will
find the answer to this question. obviously, one cannot calculate it. to
determine this dose experimentally, one would have to do experiments on
humans, which is, in principle, not possible. moreover, the dose that would
totally supress the immune system would also likely affect other organ
systems to such an extent that it would be very difficult to know whether
the effect is due to immune supression or to global system malfunction.
