    Article about two doctors that are taking ARV's with some success. One doc is Jamie Deckoff-jones the other is new to me, Dr. Snyderman.

    http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/6158196/antiretroviral_drugs_or_not_two_doctors.html?cat=70


    [I]Dr. Snyderman is an oncologist, a cancer specialist, who himself developed a rare cancer that is not that uncommon in CFS patients. He started treatment with AZT and Isentress at HIV doses. He reported that he felt 25% better after 3 weeks. In the 6th month of treatment he added Viread, also at the HIV dosage. At a medical conference he presented a poster detailing his tests, treatment and outcome.

    His poster indicates that he no longer tests positive for the XMRV retrovirus and the markers for his cancer have improved

    Also an interesting note at the bottom of the article [I]"Dr. Mikovits is scheduled to report on similar ARV drug treatments by other physicians on January 17, 2011."[/I]

    is she scheduled to speak on jan 17th? Anyone know where?

    I don't have MCS (not severely anyway), but that is a great idea to put the seminar requirement about fragrances. I unintentionally wore a pea size amount of lotion to a doctors appointment once. They caught me as soon as I walked up to the counter to check-in, but thankfully there was no more MCS patients coming in that afternoon.

    This should be a very interesting seminar. Do we have anyone going?

    'Fragrance free' - what a great idea. I almost passed out early one morning when a ward Sister (nurse) in hospital came in wearing perfume. And that was when I was young, healthy and working! Perfume is a potential lethal weapon and this one could stun the nervous system at 100 yards - no kidding.

    Thanks for posting this seminar info Special K.
