Seeking Donors for Our Pathogenic Priming Research
We're taking a deep dive into the pediatric vaccines to find and catalog unsafe epitopes that could lead to autoimmunity.
IPAK studies underway need monthly funding - and as you might guess, some donors are suspending their monthlies due to financial hardship.
One of our research areas has a lot of people excited: We’re studying all of the proteins in each pathogen in each vaccine in the pediatric schedule to identify the autoreactogenic (unsafe) epitopes that are likely to lead to autoimmunity via pathogenic priming. We have the first study on HepB done, and have moved on to the MMR vaccine.
It is only through your support of objective science that we can continue.
Please consider signing up for a small monthly donation @ IPAK. Visit this link and click on the Science Hero logo and we'll put it to good use!
