    Interesting article, thank you for posting. I believe that most diseases are connected to the gut.

    This looks like good news but is anyone else a little concerned that big pharma will find a way to patent bacteria ?

    Although we don't yet have big pharma putting up the cost for such large studies in ME/CFS, at least we are fortunate enough to have Lipkin looking there for us. There is huge potential here and if we can show a possible link, as has been done in UC, then big pharma will become interested.
