    Yeah I read that one too User. Was hoping for some more information. I suppose they will be asking for 'donations' and will need these before they can publish anything. Not like one has a freezer-full of dead ME patients is it?! :)

    What they say about the trial suggests that they have funding.

    I think it is hopeful that they are not satisfied with just doing a rituximab trial but are trying to understand ME as a disease hence looking into a possible site of imflamation. Its good to see people trying to fit the pieces together.

    The Norwegian researchers are out of the box thinkers, I think. We need that. At least some doctors were using CPET, for example, decades ago to test ME and CFS patients. Yet nothing happened with it. Similarly we have known that blood from newly infected ME patients might have a transmissible pathogen since 1955. Yet how much research is going into this? Too much gets overlooked, its nice when someone opens up their toolbox and tries a screwdriver instead of a hammer.
