    From wikipedia:
    Apparently both drugs (and especially the combination) carry the risk of very severe side effects. But interesting research nevertheless given the current testing of cancer drugs in ME/CFS.
    Also both drugs cost about £75,000 each for a course of treatment (compared to only hundreds of pounds for standard chemotherapy).

    Good to see they are targeting ways to improve the immune system to fight cancer. I hope cfsme can maybe benefit from these findings.

    Yes once again the fate of many patients will lie in the hands of NICE, big pharma will be rubbing their hands - again........ I hate this lottery of drugs, isn't it time govts were able to buy the patent of really useful life saving drugs from pharma for the costs of the research plus a reasonable profit. What is the world all about if its not saving lives?

    Probably alot of tax payer funds go to these big pharma companies to help research , I wonder how much of these funds actually go back to tax payers?
