RONALD SHIPPEE: I don't have access to that information. You would suspect in that age military population, they have probably had a booster shot within the last 4 or 5 years.
Now, I am interested in the way you present your data, and it has come up here before. You take the delayed-hypersensitivity skin test, and you will probably talk about this, and you present a cumulative value, right? I have not done that because I don't see much reaction to the other antigens, and I am starting to wonder whether maybe that in itself is significant. So, I always show the diphtheria and tetanus because I don't have any other reactions, and maybe that is the overall anergy that we are seeing.
ROBERT NESHEIM: Thank you very much. I think we have to move on. The committee will be dealing with this, and we will have some opportunities for further discussion later this afternoon.
