ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    Great news from the United Kingdom today:

    Great to see a trial is soon underway in both U.K and Norway.

    Such fantastic news! Let's hope the results are everything we hope for and that M.E patients will soon be looking forward to not just having a treatment available, and an explanation for our illness, but being treated with respect and concern by the medical profession.

    Bring it on!

    Regardless of the outcome of the trials, this is another milestone for our community. If some scientific study is important to us then we can make it happen. Government and institution funding committees be damned.

    It is great. Rituximab has been so important to us and has made other researchers take note too I think.

    This is music to my ears ;). Now I'd like to see things moving here in the US too, but I'm afraid we'll have to wait a few years to get both the Norwegian and British studies' results analyzed and published, before the FDA will start to seriously look into this.
