The authors thank Ms. Lillian Richards for
both general and secretarial support, Drs. Gerald Baum, Irving Zucker,
and Irwin Ziment for their useful discussions. (The recipe for Dr.
Ziment’s chicken soup, a formula developed from Ms. Yda Ziment, which
he finds of great value in vivo, is available
elsewhere.40 It was not tested as a comparator here, there
being a limit to tests to which Grandma’s soup recipe should be
subject.) We also thank Mrs. Doris Oglander for consultations regarding
Grandma’s soup recipe and Rachael, Emily, Sarah, Hannah, David,
Rebecca, Naomi, and Dena Rennard for assistance in quality control.
