Question, I think some people involved with CAA participate here or at least people w/knowledge about it. I am late to the political history game with CFS so trying to play catch up the last couple years. I was struck today during a search at pubmed how research related to immune/viral stuff in ballpark of cfids dropped off after the 80s. Rereading Hillary Johnson's essay about the CDC corruption at her website tonight reminded me why she is down on CAA and it also made me realize the diversion of research funds in 90s for cfs could be why dearth of certain types of research after 80s related to cfs per se. I didnt do a comprehensive search on cfs today and I know people say there are tons of studies supporting bio etiology in cfs but I did notice that certain topics seemed to fall away ie on IVIG in 90s, this was just an aside I noticed in a narrow search regarding herxheimer reaction and antivirals. At any rate, hillary writes that when she went to congressmen Nadler to help with the congressional inquiry regarding cdc misuse of cfs funds that the CAA basically coached Reeves to get thru it unscathed. Why is that, that is what I am really curious about now. Was it not apparent by '96 that Reeves is a sack of sheeit? I really don't know, so am curious what others know. thanks and excuse my "french", I want to say and do much worse to the man but I'm a nice midwestern girl Oh and one more question, anyone know why things didnt change for the better for cfs in research and public eye after the scandal inquiry in 96 by nadler?
