We can only guess whether the list is complete or if there are other substances which negate the effect of Tovaxin in the same way that certain factors seem to render other vaccines useless.
I doubt we'll ever know, but it would be interesting to know what percentage of Tovaxin IIb participants involved themselves in other things, and I'd guess the percentage was fairly high.
Then again, I don't think Lew has done anything "funny" along the way and hasn't seemed to experience any benefit from being on the "real thing" for some time.

With that in mind, waiting as long as possible might just increase the odds of a favorable result.av8rgirl wrote:If I knew what is causing my negative MRTC test results, I would be elated at this point. This 90 day waiting period between blood draws in killing me!!
