Re: Further to Peter Flegg and the TB ref.
Ms Butler accuses me of "professional ignorance", claiming I have
"little idea about..immunity", or "how vaccines actually work" and "little
understanding about host responses and immune mechanisms."
I shall have to defer to her superior knowlege on these subjects. She
obviously must know more about these than I ever will.
8 years undergraduate and postgraduate training and experience in Infectious Diseases in Africa, 9 years subspecialty training and experience in the UK in Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine, 3 years postgraduate research leading to an MD thesis on immune dysfunction in drug users, and 8 years experience as a consultant specialising in Infection, Immunodeficiency and HIV Medicine.
