    Does anyone know how Ron Davis ended up on the IOM panel?? That is super intriguing to me.

    Gerhard Gottfries
    - Contracted ME/CFS himself (during the 1950s)

    Lars Lagerstrand
    - Contracted ME/CFS himself


    Emeritus Professor Carl-Gerhard Gottfries (born 1928) was a professor of psychiatry and used to be chief physician of a substantial hospital in Sweden. His career has focused on the neuroscience of diseases affecting the brain.

    His research into FM and ME/CFS has included testing long-term use of staphylococcus toxoid vaccine as a therapy; and an attempt to replicate the original XMRV-CFS finding.

    He also established Sweden's major dedicated ME/CFS centre, the Gottfries Clinic.

    That Clinic currently employs 6 medical doctors (4 with PhDs) and sees 2,500 ME/CFS and FM patients per year.

    The CEO of the Clinic is Professor Johan Gottfries - I wonder whether he's Gerhard's son?


    Lars Lagerstrand is a medical doctor and associate professor of clinical virology at Sweden's mighty Karolinska Institute. He has personally used Gottfries' vaccine therapy over a period of at least 8 years.

    He is one of a group of Scandenavian doctors involved with Gottfries' research into FM and ME/CFS.

    Thanks @Persimmon. Very interesting thread. Great job you are doing. All these researchers with personal motivations give hope.

    Did you read somewhere about Olav Mella┬┤s motivation?
