Royal Free Hospital outbreak of ME in 1955 - were you there?
David Tuller, the American journalist, would like to talk to anyone who was involved in the Royal Free Hospital outbreak of M.E. back in 1955.
If you were a member of staff, or were hospitalised at the time, please send your details to: email@example.com
David Tuller is asking for anyone from the Royal Free outbreak of 1955 to contact him, please.
I suggest too that it would be worth his while contacting Dr Byron Hyde for information on the survivors from the LA outbreak back in the early 1930s. Dr Hyde recently had a patient doctor who contracted ME during that outbreak and he related the story that the medics where given massive sums in compensation providing they sign a gagging clause as to the alleged source of the outbreak which was considered to be the new Brodie vaccine for polio.
The institute that manufactured it and were expecting to make massive profits from it provided the funds for the compensation. I believe it was the Rockefeller Institute.
Dr Bodie who was only in his 30s I believe committed suicide shortly after, I read in Dr Hyde's article on this.
I hope David covers this aspect too.
