    Dr Derek Enlander of the CFS/ ME Clinic in New York has been awarded a $50,000 research grant to determine the effects of EECP (Enhanced External Cardiac CounterPulsation) on the circulation of patients suffering from CFS/ME. The EECP machine has been installed in the New York Clinic and patients are now being treated.
    Dr Cheney and Dr Enlander have previously written about CFS / ME causing cardiovascular symptoms, this research may yield help in this facet. Initial results are promising.

    Thanks barbara - and welcome to the forum.

    Good to hear that initial results are good. I hope you can keep us posted on the research.

    Where did the grant come from?
