What has happened to part 3??
It should be out this week
I hope so... I've been considering this blog a lot and I'm very keen for part 3!
I know, try to keep realistic hope in case it doesn't work.
I am ... just to have something that helps would be the best though, even if it doesn't cure completely!
Any new news on cortene trial. was this discussed at meeting with all the me/cfid's dr's last weekend? thought cort wld put out 3rd installation of blog by now.
seriously what has happened to part 3?? Anyone know?
Cort has a cold...should be out in the next few days though.
Thanks @Ema I'm actually losing hope/interest now in this... it had got me very excited but after leaving the 3rd installment so long, I'm feeling a lot less enthused - if it was so hopeful, I'm sure Cort wouldn't have left it almost 4 weeks and maybe longer (there was only 1 between part 1 and 2).
@Cort Get well soon! Don't hurry with part III, recovery comes first... (although, having read part I and II, waiting IS hard...)
I wouldn’t say that at all. Don’t read too much into the delay, other than we all do the best we can with this illness.
Yes we do. I agree. It's just been disheartening. For me anyway.
Part 3 is now available on health rising peeps!
Based on the info available it looks like it will be one of the better-designed trials. They'll be using CPET and looking at PEM.
And the involvement of the Bateman Horne Center should hopefully ensure trial participants will actually have ME rather than just some sort of undefined fatigue.
Plus, even if the trial fails - probably more likely than not but one can never help but hope a little - at least one senior ME researcher will have learned a lot from it.
Link to Part 3:
Is CT38 Urocortin II?
Also, Urocortin II is a 38 amino-acid peptide.
Urocortin II is essentially an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), an anorexigenic (appetite suppressant) and a hypotensive (blood pressure reducer.)
If CT38 is indeed Urocortin II (or an analog), what are the odds that this is curative for SEID?
I asked Cort this yesterday on this blog comment section but got no reply....but I think the 38 amino acid thing is pretty confirming....I wonder if this info can be found on any patent documents?
Urocortin - Cortene - CT38 - CT for Urocortin, 38 amino acids
you are right. I did not realize it at first.
Urocortin 3 also has 38 amino acids
Could also be this PG-873637.....but can find much info on this
