As such, I would guess the test for mrtc's would not be able to differentiate between CIDP & MS like an MRI could?

On Dec. 6, I went in for the baseline MRI and on Dec. 11, I went in for the "big" blood draw. Feb. 24 is my next visit where I will get my first treatment, be it real or placebo.
As for MRTC isolation rate, according to the study coordinator here in Lexington as of Dec 11, of the 7 people who were screened, 6 tested positive for the MRTCs that Opexa is looking for.
Of course I can't testify to the accuracy of what I was told, only what the technician told me.........which puts us back to just about to ground zero! I don't know about you but I'm not sure what to believe now!
