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.

    Just a quick skim of 6 pgs or so of continual techno-jargon.... In laymen's terms... they have ID'd a broader range of potential antiretrovirals/ candidate Rxs than previously "appreciated"... made other important discoveries.. technical hows of inhibition, receptor sites, etc.. Their analysis resolves disparities among earlier reports... (Rxs thought to be resisted - which in adequate amt X is not resistant to) So... to rephrase their statement, i.e. not violate copyright...just in case X is found to be the culprit/disease causing in humans... there are now more Rxs from which to choose. I did not see mention of CFS specifically..... (induced infection of) breast cancer cells/ and prostate were mentioned... unless I missed something. Also the triple therapy Dr Jamie & dtr are using apparently were shown not to be very effective in other earlier studies.. but ARE in fact, if dosage is adjusted.

    Thanks for posting this. I am excited at the tantalizing possibility of one day feeling better! I know it will be awhile before we have anything that looks like a generally approved protocol, but if this illness hasn't taught me patience, it hasn't taught me anything :)
