International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.

    Here is an abstract that discusses the current thoughts behind this kind of treatment:

    Currently the top two GlyT1 inhibitors available are sarcosine (an endogenous inhibitor) and Bitopertin (which will be marketed come 2015?).

    D-amino acid oxidase (DAAO) inhibitors inhibit the breakdown of d-serine (and other D-amino acids). D-serine is an endogenous co-agonist of the NMDA glycine/d-serine site.

    A few more links:

    https://www1.wfsbp-congress.org/guest/AbstractView?ABSID=11058 for OCD
    https://www1.wfsbp-congress.org/guest/AbstractView?ABSID=11023 for depression
    https://www1.wfsbp-congress.org/guest/AbstractView?ABSID=11059 sodium benzoate, a potential DAAO inhibiting agent
    https://www1.wfsbp-congress.org/guest/AbstractView?ABSID=12051 for Alzheimers

    There are likely other DAAO agents being tested, as I have read some material about this dating back at least 5 years. Sodium benzoate was something I just spotted on this particular site.
