    Your guess makes very much sense Mark!

    The two Rituximab replication studies are of absolute, tantamount importance!!

    Next we need a third one here in the US!!!

    By the way thanks for tweeting from the conference;).

    I would agree with Mark's anaysis. Getting things published is not always straightforward! The Norwegian team are very generous with discussion of their findings with colleagues and to be honest my interpretation is that what matters is that there is nothing to suggest not going ahead with their bigger trial. The follow up study has been very helpful for planning but it was never going to provide definitive conclusions. Things take time, and usually more time than it seems they should.

    I would like to take the opportunity of congratulating IiME and all the delegates at the meeting on such an impressive exercise. This year I attended both the workshop and the open meeting and I feel I am beginning to appreciate the breadth and depth of the quality research going on. And colleagues from other research fields invited this time seemed to be as drawn in to the ME problem as I was last year. It is all still at the stage of elusive clues, but you have an ever expanding team of sleuths on the job. People are getting wise to what they are really looking for and how to look and that to my mind is 80% of the battle.
