creatures. Good observation. Simple reply. They died at the same rate as the controls. Interesting thing,
though, is that injection of a solution of "pure" cAMP into mice after challenge resulted in 100% survival.
Unfortunately, I couldn't afford to buy more than a miniscule amount of cAMP since I was financing the
research out of my own pocket, so there was no controlled study done following this limited test.
