    The interesting thing here is the possibility that it takes both B cell and T cell failures to lead to MS. Something different but parallel might be happening in ME.

    I have not seen prices. I suspect Rituximab might be cheaper.

    My understanding is that the neuro disease ME has higher morbidity and prevalence, but a lower mortality rate. If fibro is finally proven to be neuro its even more common.
