New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    It's really quite frustrating...I've never heard so many waffle words at one time on one subject. Are there no straight shooters on this committee? They keep passing responsibility all around and repeating that they "recognize" the problems, etc.etc, especially the government people. Wanda Jones is an exception, she seems able to actually say something when she opens her mouth. The government folks basically keep saying, it's not in my job description... Jason is way too diplomatic, IMO.

    What amazes me is people like flybro who can Chat, crack hilarious jokes, watch the CFSAC, make posts on the forum and use the loo all at once! I'm sure that's why she's called Superfly!!

    Yes. I like his approach. In the 'CFS definition' webinar he absolutly shredded the Emperic defnition all the while maintaing a balanced diplomatic tone.

    It's too bad his time on the board is up. I don't think he'd give Dr. Unger much wiggle room the next time she makes an appearance.

    He and Nancy should be on the board as long as they wish to serve.

    I was sitting here watching but my cell didn't ring. Too bad I can't afford a landline. There isn't a number to call into is there?

    I did submit my comments in writing but they haven't been posted yet.

    Edit: never mind!
