    Thanks, leela. Nice to see some good news (the award is in relation to the Rituximab ME/CFS work).

    Yes, Sasha, it's good to be reminded that some good things are occurring, even as the distressing stuff abounds.
    I am really glad to see Norway staying so focused on the urgency and importance of ME and its serious research, which has remained so long in the shadows.

    brilliant - lets hope its the first of many as they progress with their work. how far does 100,000 kronor go in dollars or sterling?

    It appears to be equivalent to US$17,295.00
    But hey. It's a start, and a highly symbolic one at that.
