ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    this 4:00 pm PST presentation will not be broadcast live due to the fact that Dr. DeMeirleir will be speaking about his paper that has not yet been published.

    we will have to rely on the reporting of someone who is there....

    This was today's talk at Reno, right?

    Apparently it was recorded but won't be available till the paper is published.
    I expect that anyone there is under orders not to speak of it, which although frustrating, would be understandable.

    If KDM is giving a talk in an auditorium, it is a public place. Information should flow out of the place. Perhaps a journalist will be there. If it's a private closed talk by invitation only, that's another matter. But it has not been advertised as this.

    I trust folks will be posting here whatever they come across on twitter, etc.

    Embargoed information is embargoed.
    We as patients should be able to respect that until the paper is published.

    What is at stakes here is the ability of the author to publish and to respect his contract with the publishing paper.

    My 2 cents.

    KDM has already told some of his patients bits and pieces of his core thesis. Of course, treatment is another issue.

    The paper will likely have lots of details. Perhaps questions will be allowed from those present. But we should hear something. Generally, at open conferences the speaker gives good chunks of information, then the published paper offers details, statistics, proofs, elaborations, etc.

    i hope the paper talks about potential treatments but i just dont think it will. the discovery is significant but i dont know how it will translate into treatment or when :-/

    it was an open presentation but people were probably asked not to say anything.

    tom kindlon is in ireland and didnt go ...he often tweets about this kind of thing

    So the talk is called "From CFS to autoimmunity". I guess we can now consider ourselves afflicted with an autoimmune disorder. this is the way other research groups are leaning towards, as well.
