    Too tired to comment much now, but I read just in the last day or two of a study in which a deficiency of just one key immune protein can lead to persistent viral infection. I don't recall the article though, only that this was mostly on mice. I just searched my email for it but it wasnt there.

    If anyone is interested in exploring Rituximab and its implications, then please pop over to the other thread with me. :)

    I know Peterson likes to talk occasionally, but I seriously doubt he knows the results of the Lipkin xmrv study. My understanding is that his role in the XMRV/MLV study being done with Columbia was limited to supplying patient samples and matched controls from his practice/area.

    If they're at the point of finalising the paper and getting it peer reviewed, it wouldn't surprise me if everyone involved now knew the result.

    I wonder if there has been research on TLR7 and Amitriptyline effects on the protien
    I know its a pain killer. But was wondering about its possible effect on this missing or dysfunctional protien
    As i did well on Amitriptyline. And not just in a non depressive way. Ive been saying that here for years. But i am out of my depth. there may be no research showing any benefit on TLR7 problems. Just thought i would mention the idea ?

    I was on amitryptyline for sleep. 20mg and it helped loads. I stopped two months ago because I had to look after my daughter while my wife had appendicitis. Daughter doesn't sleep well and needs rocking all night.
    Sleep has slowly declined since. I may go back on them but was enjoying being off all tablets. Also I know I feel dreadful the first two weeks back on them so avoiding it.
    So this research suggests it may be good for ME?
    On a general note I have been feeling worse off it overall.

    18th SEPTEMBER. Awesome. It will be like sitting up waiting for the Wimbledon final. I MIGHT EVEN DRINK A BEER!

    Best case scenario: We Will All Be Cured in a Couple of Weeks.

    As for the Amitriptyline, for gods sake dont listen to me. TLR-4 detects lipopolysaccharide and produces an inflammatory response. Whether this response is a good thing in cfs, i dont know.
    Wiki lists Ketotifen and Amitriptyline as antagonists which would presumably turn down this response.
    I should stick to drinking beeer, and not engage in medical speculation.

    I'm quoting myself, because I was just watching a movie the other day wherein a character used "draw a line under" in the sense of crossing it off the list. I have never heard that before, but of course, I don't get out much :sluggish:

    Anyhow, it's such a short wait now to see the study. I hope we get some solid info for moving forward,
    whatever the results.

    I always thought "draw a line under" was for emphasis thus the phrase "the bottom line". But then I also thought the Lipkin study was coming out on the 28th. I think this is the first time my fog has had a positive outcome.

    Of course now I have to stop doing anything productive and find the phrase on the internet, etc., etc. etc. :rolleyes:

    I don't get out much, either.:lol:

    Barb C.:>)

    Now this has led me to wonder about the phrase "drawing a line in the sand" and how it's related to the above. Learning new things is a never ending battle.:D

    draw a line under

    resolve not to engage in further discussion or consideration of (a difficult or distressing issue or situation): we need to draw a line under this whole affair, not prolong it
    The orgin is I think mathematics/accountancy - a heavy horizontal line denoting the end of a calculation or accounting series. Anything that follows, although it may use data derived from above the line (for example a closing balance), is considered to operate under different conditions to that which applied to the calculations made above the line. A completed calculation may of course get a 'tick' from the auditor, teacher or examiner, and the completed work may be 'crossed off' the work list. In printing a heavy line was once standard at the end of a book chapter, and of course still denotes the end of an article in some print media.​

    So, shall we, ehem, draw a line under the English discussion now then?!? hehehe... :lol: :rofl:


    (Disclaimer: Sorry, that was my poor attempt at a joke... I'm not attempting to stop any English discussions! My jokes don't always translate well onto forums, so it's best that I point out that it's my attempt at a joke!)
