    I remember a KMUD interview where RP talked about Autoimmune diseases.
    He mentioned that higher antibody count in some type of brain autoimmune
    disease shows quicker recovery. Theory is that presence of antibodies shows
    cleaning up after inflammatory damage. He uses similar reasoning in misdiagnosis of
    Hashimoto autoimmune based on antibodies. There is a cross linking of antibodies
    between Arthritis and Hashimoto thyroiditis.
    One worrying thing about that study is that they used prednisone, which as an
    immunosuppressive anti-inflammatory drug.
    They probably would have gotten same result with prednisone without removing antibodies.
