Thank you so much Rich for taking the time to explain the situation as you see it so clearly. Like you i hope that the MCBH is looked into in more detail. I remember Dr Mikovits saying something about methylation treatment in one of her talks as being useful so it seems that some researchers are taking it seriously. My first thought after seeing the rituximab talk was " how can i get to Norway for a trial" but my second thought was "hmm, risk death and deplete an important aspect of my immune system" not for me for now but i am very encouraged by the talk that they are now doing a further larger trial (was due to start Oct 2011) and they are working very hard to see what else is going on and to work out why the rituximab is helping. It will be interesting to see if this study gets as much attention in the Lancet as the death threats story. All the best, Justy.
