    I saw Dr. Chia yesterday for a check up and he seemed really optimistic that an effective treatment for ME is coming soon. Sorry, no details... but still :)

    I think it could be Oxymatrine.

    Thanks Flitza for the note. But what does SOON mean? Did you get a sense?

    No. He uses and has used for years a form of oxymatrine in his Equilibrant. It's not something he's developing.
    Yes. He suggested it involved something that had already been approved in a similar form for something else. So sooner.

    He’s likely talking about CAR T-cell therapy

    Is this CAR- T cell therapy something that Dr. Ron Davis' team is working on also? I see from googling that Stanford is the only facility in No. CA. offering this therapy as a treatment for certain cancers?

    Have not heard of any new treatments in soooooooooo long it's difficult to not get excited and want to know more.

    Thanks

    So it can not be Cortene / CT38 as some people suggested?
