    Confirmation from someone affiliated with CFI of receipt of the study.

    I would guess MS has better funding sources than ME, so it hopefully won't be such a marathon. Fingers crossed it could have positive repercussions in ME.

    It does seem very early days. And to be reporting on this in such a way when the study only comprised one patient seems strange. Then again, if the exposure helps bring interest to the team who worked on it - and funding - then large studies with controls if viable in some way - could produce more significant results that night lead to a better understanding of MS and other conditions perhaps.

    Yeah - reporting of these sorts of this always seems a bit scary to me, but they're open about the fact that it's just one person.

    "Don't have anywhere near as much fatigue. Nowhere near as much pain."

    Mr. Pender says in the radio interview that the patient's symptoms improved 2 weeks after the injection, and he has remained improved for 1 YEAR after the injection.

    I spoke with Mr. Pender, and the organization MS Queensland is attempting to get a bigger trial going based on his study. The YouTube video below interviews Professor Pender and the patient from the study. According to the video, they need to raise $400,000 for a trial.
