    Add in the things we anticipate from what we learned this year: phase 3 Rituximab trial and results from phase 2, the fibro antiviral plus antiinflammatory trial, Lipkin's findings, and independent confirmation of the 2 day CPET, this is a powerful springboard into the next year.

    Who's carrying out that study, Alex? (Not sure if I'm aware of it.)

    Do not forget the hope for 'recovery' provided from the PACE Trial (just kidding).

    The result of the ongoing genome study at Mt Sinai Hospital will also be very interesting.

    I quote @Nielk
    (sorry I don´t know how to link to a post or a thread in PR :confused:)

    "They are looking for 150 ME/CFS patients and 150 controls. They are doing the genome sequencing for all 300 patients to look at what is distinguishing in the ME/CFS group.
    Nielk, Feb 26, 2013

    150 people with ME/CFS will be genome sequenced :thumbsup: Nielk, do you have any news?

    To link to the beginning of a thread, click on the time-stamp (e.g. "Yesterday at 9:08 AM") directly underneath the thread's title, then just copy and paste the web link (url) from the top of the web browser.

    For an individual post, either click on the time stamp at bottom-left of each post (e.g: "Today at 10.03pm") and then copy the browser's url, or click on the post number at bottom-right of each post (e.g: "#8" ) and copy the (top) weblink from the pop-up box.

    A link to a specific post will have a post number on the end of the weblink, e.g: /#post-416260

    So the link to this thread is:
    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/2013-a-year-we-will-never-forget.27294/

    And the link to this post is:

    If Julia Newton and Workwell could collaborate, hmmmm? A wish for the New Year perhaps?

    One thing having ME/CFS has taught me.. is how to have a good sarcastic sense of humour. so I found your comment quite funny. I didnt have that kind of humour until this illness.

    Some people can't handle my sarcasm, I wonder how many of us develop sarcasm as a result of ME?
