International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    In the video clip [approx 2 min] it also says:

    ‚ÄĚSamples from these same patients are also being used by Dr Michael Houghton, University of Alberta to examine cytokines.

    And being used by Drs Alan and Kathy Light to look for the presence of autoantibodies."

    England (south coast)
    Safety Alert: To prevent tissue damage, always wear protective gloves when handling dry ice, or items that have been packed in dry ice. End of Safety Alert. (Sorry to be so boring!)

    The research looks very interesting; all three research projects look interesting!

    Very interesting but I wonder why they didn't sent the samples to Metabolon, the US based company used by Ron Davis, if I recall correctly.

    Can't hurt to have different sources look at this I suppose.

    Right but maybe there is an interesting reason.

    It's not quite clear whos funding the testing exactly in this collaboration, but testing showing the same things from different labs would be brilliant wouldn't it?
    I imagine the Bateman and Horne Center have patient samples banked up ready for use quite easily?

    My impression was that there's a Japanese group that wants to research them and that Bateman Horne are essentially acting like a biobank.

    I wondered that too @Sasha. In the video it's hard to hear the initial words but I think I heard "for the biomarker study"
