    Conference began with awards (in French) followed by a short video featuring Jen Brea @Jen B.

    Liveatream audio volume very low [later corrected] so hope Jen's video will be available online.

    Dr. Byron Hyde feels ME is a neurocirculatory disease and mentioned autoimmune vasculitis.

    Ron Davis gave an outstanding summary of his infectious diseases, immune, and metabolomics research leading up to the "Metabolic Trap" hypothesis which he feels is "reversible."

    So far an excellent conference, very well-organized....

    He's going to have to make up his mind. Where did his enterovirus theory go?

    the enterovirus is what he suspects causes hypoperfusion that would not rule out vasculitis . poorly working veins would explain poor blood circulation in a lot of people wit m .e .

    Theory still there @Kati as far as I can tell.

    He briefly covered ME outbreaks, patients he visited incl. at Royal Free and other sites around the world, showed a slide of Dr. Chia's enterovirus/ stomach tissue, reviewed manifestations of EV infections, etc.

    The presentation seemed to be a shortened version of a longer one he had to compress into the 20-minute time slot. Hopefully full versions of all presentations incl. his will be made available.

    @alkt highlights Hyde's current thinking in the post above:

    the enterovirus is what he suspects causes hypoperfusion that would not rule out vasculitis . poorly working veins would explain poor blood circulation in a lot of people wit m .e . .
