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.

    Hi Gigaphage, this research invokes almost every hot topic I have ever been interested in with biochemistry. It could mark the beginning of the end for type-2 diabetes. In 1993 I persuaded a local CFS doc to start trialling high dose omega-3s for CFS, but at the time this was short chain omega-3s: the evidence for long chain omega-3s was yet to dominate (and I was the first test subject). The finding of macrophage induced insulin resistance was also announced here in Australia not all that many months ago. I wonder if there weren't many groups around the world making the same discoveries at the same time? Some years after 1993 (2000?) I read Indian subcontinent research that implied the same thing. I guess its time to railroad ...

    The question for those with XMRV is this: how do these pathways interact with XMRV induced cytokines?

    Bye, Alex
