    What reason(s) would you postulate for the fact that non-US researchers have also failed to cure cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's in non-US jurisdictions under different regulatory systems?

    That's an excellent question. I can't give you the perfect answer but in my eyes the main reason is the observation, that most healthcare systems all over the world reflect more or less what the FDA does. In Europe you have nearly the same regulatory hurdles as in the US. In fact, you seem to have these hurdles in all developed countries.

    At the Action for ME 2013 AGM Stephen Holgate gave a talk that covered much of the same ground as his talk to the Forward ME Group featured in this blog (plus some more material, I think). The video of that AfME talk is now available here:



    It is quite long, but it's a cracker starting off with Florence Nightingale (who very probably had ME) and sweeping through medicine to the present day and the development of new technologies that could be just what's needed to solve ME/CFS.

    This was being discussed in another thread.

    Two years on, I wonder what if anything has changed?
