    Something just reminded me that Maureen Hanson got a NIH grant to study these patients. The main focus was MLVs. However, she did say she would do other testing

    My overall impression from reading this thread is that the research paper is only useful to the extent it stimulates more research funding. Am I correct in assuming that this is a dirty little secret of the research 'community', i.e., everyone knows most published research is rubbish, and the purpose is to generate more grants?

    Seems to me there is something very, very wrong with this...
