Association b/tween IVIG response & FcyR gene in KD patients

Post by Pioneer » Tue May 29, 2012 1:57 pm

Check out this paper that I just found!! One author: Dr Michael Portman is doing other studies at Seattle Children's Hospital in Seattle, WA. This is really interesting and helpful to know how IVIG works. Dr Portman also has other studies, I am so excited to get involved!! :D

Wow, that is really neat that you met him Nancy!

Hey everyone, I contacted Seattle Children's Hospital specifically their Cardiology department and they gave me Dr Portman's coordinator phone number in case anyone is interested.
