    that impressive graph that shows how cfs patients experience exercise is found in this article

    http://www.jpain.org/article/S1526-5900(09)00574-4/abstract

    you need to join the journal to get the full article (that would include the graph), so this link only allows you to see the abstract (summary).

    batemen said the graph was soooo impressive that the journal put it on the cover of the magazine.

    that graph is THE best diagnostic test i have seen for cfs. am i alone in thinking that?

    How can we help?

    1. Donate to Research (shout out for WPI and CAA)
    2. Participate in clinical trials
    3. CAA has established its own biobank for the research community - which allows anyone in CFS community to provide biological samples, clinical data, etc (details about biobank coming soon)

    but how do they determine if XMRV is there without a standardized test? I suppose they look for as many different genetic sequences as they can find and assume that at least some of them have to show up.

    Luv that Biobank. Just think all these samples sitting there; researchers don't have to try and find chronic fatigue syndrome patients - they just go to these samples from these very well characterized patients and test them! That would probably cut about a year off the research project. Thats a year less we have to wait.

    That whole international research network thing the CFIDS Association is engaged in is really exciting to me. I REALLY hope it works out... it will take money, though..

    They need money for research.

    They need money for research.
    (And people to participate in studies.)

    CAA has established a Bio Bank - anyone in the CFS community can provide data - a Webinar is to come in the next month to discuss this.

    Just a little thing, but I think that is supposed to be FMS, not MS.

    Thanks Anne!

    No -- it's correct -- MS - Multiple Sclerosis.

    I was sitting at the Reno conference and when he gave his presentation you could hear the 'oohs' as he kept talking. It was my "surprise of the conference" http://aboutmecfs.org/Conf/IACFS09Surprise.aspx. He's agreed to an interview at some point.

    I hope I can watch the NEXT webinar. :)

    Blood supply is being tested, but we don't really have a reliable test. Kinda scary. But I guess going with what you've got is better than nothing. Seems like you'd accelerate the provision for standardized testing now....

    My University does not have holdings to the Journal of Pain, so I cannot get full-text access of the paper either.
