    Stephen Holgate reports Francis Collins, NIH Director, flagged up recent PNAS mecfs metabolomics paper as an example of the value of metabolomics (via Dr Rick Dunn, part of the MEGA project, who was at the washington meet with Collins)

    Can someone confirm? Stephen Holgate said the MEGA study will use "broad criteria".
    As Crawley is involved in this that wouldn't be a surprise, unfortunately...

    If Crawley's involved, it'd be a wonder if they use any criteria at all. "Tired, love? Step this way..."

    How depressing the ME/CFS research scene is in the UK. Thank goodness for the recent research efforts from California.

    We probably have something even less rigorous than Oxford criteria to look forward to. It takes effort to recruit actual ME patients since they struggle to make it to clinics, or can't make it at all.

    Current guy is interesting - wish I'd seen it from the beginning. He's talking about using an existing cohort to test Naviaux's metabolomics and seeing if it's the result of inactivity or disease (pre vs post, case vs control) but I didn't follow his logic there, since both inactivity and disease would go hand-in-hand, timewise.

    Dr David Patrick - worth following what he's doing, I think - he's very focused on what look like promising leads and the metabolomics approach is key now.

    Bit of an echo on Zaher - sounds like he's in a bucket. :(

    Should be interesting - one of the good guys (and he's on the forum).

    Damn - clicked the link again and it's taken me to the beginning of Dr Patrick and I'd like to see the live feed. Can anyone help?

    Think either they may be running late or the stream is delayed, Dr David Patrick is only just finishing up on the stream I'm watching.
