    Why doesn't the new appropriations bill increase money for ME/CFS or XMRV research? They work on it in September. I guess Senate has written theirs, but Congress hasn't yet, so talk to Congress first.

    The House of Representatives did not take action on its Appropriations bill before the August recess. The Senate bill and House bill must be reconciled before going to the president to be signed into law. During election years, it has become routine for this process to extend beyond Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year, requiring Congress to pass “continuing resolutions” to fund government programs until the appropriations process is complete. Watch for updates here on Facebook and in CFIDSLink.

    Senate re National Institutes of Health:
    Chronic Fatigue.* – The Committee is aware that in October 2009, a group of researchers announced that it had performed blood tests on patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome [CFS] and found sufficient evidence of the presence of xenotropic murine leukemia virusrelated virus [XMRV] to suggest a correlation between XMRV and CFS. While the work has not yet been replicated, the reported research warrants further discussion and investigation. The Committee is aware that NIH will host an international symposium on XMRV in September 2010 to address the pathogenesis and clinical and public health implications of the XMRV virus and to obtain input in developing a coordinated strategy for XMRV research. The Committee also is aware that the second State of the Knowledge Conference is being planned by the Trans-NIH Working Group on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 2011 and is encouraged that this conference will likely make additional recommendations about future funding opportunities for XMRV and CFS research.
    End Quotes.

    or download complete mailing labels on right


    Contact your own congresspeople and a couple of these guys.
    Contact the Appropriations Committee Members
    I don't think they have included us (anyone want to read pdf below?). They have already written it, but should know we desperately need a large increase in funding for ME/CFS and XMRV research and for patient care, Clinics, Centers for Excellence.

    NIH is working on a standardized test for XMRV. What happens when milliions test positive in a couple years and they haven't spent anything else on research or patient care? (Sec Sebellius of HHS has money for patient care and underserved patients).
