International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Wow, they have a model for turning on the HERV production (in the lab, I'm guessing) that may be what is happening in ME/CFS patients. That's a big step if this whole area turns out to be a significant step.

    I'm afraid I couldn't hear Dr Lombardi properly - looking forward to a summary somewhere!

    Dr. Lombardi: "In the ME patients we found more (Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells) in the gut than in the controls but we also found that they were expressing endogenous retroviruses whereas they weren't in the controls."
