    Has anyone received this letter and what does it mean?

    That's basically the same thing that's posted on the FDA website -- their side of the Ampligen story ("In 2009, the review division asked Hemispherx to conduct at least one additional controlled clinical study showing a convincing effect in the CFS population. No new trials were conducted"), plus their (supposed) commitment to future drug development for ME/CFS.

    caledonia, if you have better options, please share with us.

    One of our fellow patient has not had food in over 9 days on our behalf. The least we can do is support him.

    I'm totally on board with Bob. Been sending out emails to NIH, FDA, reps, local NBC affilate etc.

    My response was to the lame form letter that came from the FDA. NielK wanted to know what it meant. I thought I was being humorous, but I guess it didn't translate.

    We absolutely need to support Bob and keep pounding on the NIH/FDA until we get clinical trials for Ampligen. We should not accept lame form letters and empty promises.

    Bob's status (as of 30 minutes ago) from Courtney Miller on Hunger Strike for Ampligen facebook page:

    Courtney: Bob's ok. More tired today, and taking a nap now. Be assured we're monitoring him well. He wants you to know the federal offices are hearing from everyone. Keep it up! We are being heard in the best way! I'll update phone #s to call before the morning.

    I think we've got to bear in mind that this is a campaign with a lot of updates about where to call, what to do etc. so please keep reading the comments here, folks! If anyone sees anything new, please post it - we're all in different time zones so we're not all going to catch everything as it comes out. Still the same email but with Bob cc'ed in.

    This most recent post:

    Just a fast update for everyone, Robert is resting as it has been a bit of a rough day. Please know that he is sleeping and unable to do his own posting tonight.

    Thanks, SoS - I'm starting a new thread to announce that so everyone can see it.

    I'm relieved he's stopped! I was very worried for his health.
