    More accurately, Eileen Holderman''s concern is that the name of the conference “doesn't really distinguish between myalgic encephalomyelitis and chronic fatigue syndrome.”

    Eileen says that in 1988 the CDC renamed the disease chronic fatigue syndrome, and she adds that the problem “was further compounded by definitions that included the Empirical and Oxford definition which just states only one symptom to have it, fatigue.”

    Thanks Gabby!
    Really well summarised - so helpful!

    I particularly liked the Steven Lempert's suggestion that Ampligen be transferred to the FDA antiviral division and re-evaluated now. I hope that happens.

    This is true. Actually, I believe that the HHS in 2000 formed a workgroup to affect a change of the name to NeuroEndocrineImmune Dysfunction Syndrome but, in 2003 the implementation was halted because "it would be too discruptive". This is obviously not acceptable and needs to be pushed.

    Thank you snowathlete.

    I also believe that this could be a solution to give life to the Ampligen issue.

    Great job on this, Gabby - that was a ton of material to summarise.

    I think Steven Lempert's idea was one of the most interesting, immediately-applicable suggestions to come out of the meeting.
