    Is there other countries where medical research work can be done with less interference than the US and UK? Maybe it makes sense to support research efforts in countries that don't have so much political interference?

    Oh man I agree entirely Snow Leopard (my Lion approves of your name!). I've been gritting my teeth at the latest press coverage, we need a good journalist to report the real story of M.E. Thank goodness we have Sonia Poulton.

    Australia is starting to make strides, they are looking into a diagnostic test for cfs/me, also do research in combo with dr peterson. They are getting good funding(combo of private and govt) compared to other cfs/me research but not as much as more mainstream illnesses.

    What we need is several countries doing research on the same thing say nk function and then hopefully back each others research up.

    Also i think as soon as they come up with a diagnostic test or a couple of good biomarkers then more money will be put into researching treatments.

    Hopefully the ritux stuff in norway with australian studies can stimulate more interest into researching cfs/me.

    cheers!!!
