New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    That was a great try! If you look at their front page every announcement is by the CAA but the posts in the most recent section contain posts by everyone else...It is a different setup and I can see how it's confusing..........

    Great try though!! :D

    I can't get onto page two or three of this thread -- get an error message -- "This error (HTTP 406 Not Acceptable) means that Internet Explorer was able to receive information from the website you visited, but the information was not in a format that Internet Explorer can display." This is only happening on this thread.

    I have a slightly different view of this. Because so many people are speaking out against XMRV, now is the time when WPI need help the most. Now is the time when other ME/CFS groups should be making sure they have the funds to get the work done. Leaving WPI to slug it out all alone is not in the best interest of patients. They should be helping to see this thing to the end.

    And btw, I think it's fine for other ME/CFS groups to be skeptical of XMRV, but they should still be supporting this research. That's what research is for. To find out one way or the other. Not to prejudge and ignore.

    I was forwarded an email from CAA director Amy Devine soliciting votes for CAA, but not mentioning WPI. As usual, I am disappointed in the failure of CAA to get fully behind WPI.

    I hope that CAA's directors get the message from the fact that they won no money in round two that Kim McCleary and Dr. Vernon are liabilities and that CAA needs radical change to remain viable. But I'm not holding my breath.
