However, to be honest, this WBC differentriation would appear to be a MAJOR discovery in iteself to me. As a diagnostic tool, I would see it as being up there with (or even beyond) MRI's in predicting future paths.

It does seem that Opexa is onto some things that no one else is and I'd love it if they would publish a paper explaining some of.
I think I have a pretty good understanding of the myelin reactive T cells but when they start dividing those into CD-8's and CD-4's....they lost me!
It seems Tim, as usual, has again proved his one answer leads to ten questions theory. Like you all, I am more interested in the ability to classify MS types than whatever my original question was. It would have saved a considerable amount of frustration to have had this typing done initially. Possibly my Neuro doesn't know about this possibility (or didn't want to speak of something that was out of reach) and after many long conversations on the subject I always got "there is no way to tell". Regardless, this would have to be considered a major break through if it can some day find its way into standard protocol. In my case, I am resting easier without the fear of being released from the study, not to mention finally being able to put RR in front of MS. This has turned out to be a great "extra" in this Tovaxin journey. Thank you all for your imput on this subject. Tim, if you are still "onboard", I'm sure I am one of many who thank you deeply for the effort you have put forth.
