If being infected by Hepatitis B is statistically a valid probability factor for a future diagnosis of PD, then the antibodies must be involved in the death of oour dopamine producing neurons, I believe. Whether the antibodies help or hurt our chances should have been already determined by researchers. Does anyone know about it? I'm curious because like many that work in the health field I received the series of I.M. injections with the antigen Recombivax HB to make my body produce Hep-b antibodies. Never stop wpndering why I was cursed with this disease, need closure about Recmbivax HB if anyone has some reassuring knowledge..
