Does anyone know how Ron Davis ended up on the IOM panel?? That is super intriguing to me.
- Contracted ME/CFS himself (during the 1950s)
- 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.
- his sister-in-law contracted it
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?
