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.

    The other side.
    Why?

    Surely if these disorders are caused by faulty genes, and these genes have been replaced with working ones, the effect should be permanent? Why would the conditions re-appear after 9 years?

    Or are we not supposed to ask such questions and just feel good for the people treated having 9 years problem free?

    I think after 9 years th gene therapy is still working.

    I find gene therapy interesting.

    Isn't Gene therapy essentially a virus being used to fix DNA? Why is it we have a virus that damages DNA, yet some scientists claim they can't find it, much less treat it? At the same time science has advanced to the point where scientists can use gene therapy to control exactly what genes are being modified?

    Something isn't adding up here.

    You will find that Greg Towers and many of the same universities are in on the Gene therapy research.
