The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    This has the potential to be a big (big) breakthrough for ME/CFS. With Ampligen (still) in the pipeline, studies beginning in Rituximab and the CAA's Biovista project promising new drug possibility, the idea of a streamlined approach to FDA drug approval is very exciting....Congratulations to everybody who lent their time and effort for this.

    Dear FDA,

    Why the #@*! have you not granted approval to Ampligen!?

    Yours truly,
    The patient community

    This took three separate letters and a sustained effort over time... what some other advocacy attempts have lacked. I also believe that Dr. Woodcock was honest what she said in one of her talks that she was committed to helping the needs of people with chronic illnesses. I imagine it was a combination of things; persistent effort and an FDA official who understood where we were coming from...

    Of course the proof is in the pudding......We'll see how the meeting and the agenda for the meeting evolves.

    I wonder if the Obamacare being held up by the Supreme Court had anything to do with it? They probably want to seem responsive to people, as much as possible and avoid any negative attention in regards to health care and the govt'.

    right?

    It was announced in the CFSAC that there are eight drug applications for CFS (one being Ampligen) - isn't that crazy, who would've guessed!! :)

    Maybe this will help boost them all - fingers crossed.

    Does anyone know what the other drug applications for CFS are? Hearing there are 8, really surprises me.
