Possible rejection-reaction with the serum?

I'm not sure if you're reading this anymore -- you may have decided to put all of this behind you and move on. That's fine if so, but I think you'll want to know that Sarah is administering the serum you developed for Bree to Emma, Jonas's (non-blood-related) sister.
I am concerned about this, given that your [or your father's, rather] serum was developed using Bree's blood. Given how little data on what "trait-positive" is, and what the serum is, I do not want to alarm the others unnecessarily, but some assurances from you (or better yet, details on this serum and its method of action, duration, and potential for rejection by someone it wasn't designed for in the first place) would help assuage my concerns.
[To the other friends of Emma reading this -- the simplest problem that might happen here is similar to the sort that could happen when a blood transfusion is given to someone who has an incompatible blood type with the donor of the blood. If anyone currently with Emma (or Emma herself) is reading this -- please do not be alarmed. At the same time, please look for signs of sudden illness, however mild, and report them. They might be normal reactions to the serum, or they might be something worse.]
Modern pharmaceuticals go through multiple stages of testing before being approved for use on people. You didn't have that luxury with the "trait-negative serum". Giving an untested compound to someone is a huge risk, but in this case, not doing so might be an even bigger risk.
Spencer, if you do read this, I have additional concerns, particularly with regard to the duration of action this serum has, and its level of permanence and reversibility. I do not want to ask you to explain in depth in this forum what the compound's chemical makeup is, or what its synthesis route consists of, but perhaps we could discuss this in private. If you do read this, please contact me at [email protected]

Hi Spencer -- got your email. I tried to reply, but it bounced. Sorry to hear about your phone -- plugging American chargers into the Swiss outlets will indeed, as you say, "let the magic smoke out." (They ought to warn that those adapters don't convert voltage!) Hope you get that fixed soon.
Email me your hotel location, and I'll check in with you as soon as I'm on the ground in Zürich. Hopefully I'll be there tomorrow.
(I completely understand not wanting to discuss this over email or the forums, so meeting in person is a good idea. I'll see you soon.)
