Improving previous calculations, we compute the [Formula Presented] cross section using QCD sum rules. Our sum rules for the [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] hadronic matrix elements are constructed by using vacuum-pion correlation functions, and we work up to twist-4 in the soft-pion limit. Our results suggest that using meson exchange models is perfectly acceptable, provided that they include form factors and that they respect chiral symmetry. After evaluating a thermal average we get [Formula Presented] at [Formula Presented].
