    not sure if this is the right place to leave an immunologically ignorant question, but concerning the mRNA vaccines:

    what is the possibility that covid-19 spike proteins would present with MHC as self- proteins?

  2. Incredible show… my favorite part was when Dr. Permar left and everyone talked about their impressions. An inordinate amount of time spent of Sallie’s career path that was fascinating and became a show highlight.

    If antigens can affect recovery (still just learning here… I had that misconception) can we treat with monoclonal antibodies in recovery phases?

    Just excellent work here. Thanks.
