    NIH has released a News Release announcing a strengthening of efforts to advance research for ME/CFS. Do the promises outlined in the announcement actually usher a new era of hope for the long suffering ME/CFS patients? Read more:

    So they could be studying a tiny group of patients (40?) with who knows what illness. Sounds like more Fukuda Follies to me.

    The press release says nothing about funding or issuing an RFA. It's all about re-arranging the deck chairs. With 23 different chefs on the re-arranged committee, the broth probably won't be edible.


    These people have learned nothing about our illness in the past 30 years, and if they continue to focus on "fatigue", they will learn nothing in the next 30 years. Thank God the Norwegians and other independent researchers are not waiting for NIH.

    We will know how serious they are when we see the amount of money on the table, and what they spend it on.
