    Tom Kindlon posted this to co-cure today.

    This article from China focuses on how polysaccharide isolated from Radix Pseudostellariae (PRP) can alleviate some ME/CFS symptoms.

    But what I found intriguing is that they say that they induced ME/CFS by intraperitoneal injection of polyriboinosinic:polyribocytidylic acid (poly I:C), a double-stranded synthetic RNA. Is what they induced truly ME/CFS? If it is, is anyone studying poly I:C?
