Just noticed that the Ampligen article needs a little bit of updating:
" Hemispherx replied and after both the drug and the company went under further reviews the FDA passed the drug onto the final review; we’ll probably know by spring 2009 whether Ampligen will become the first FDA-approved drug for chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)."

Feel free to delete this after the article is updated.

Thanks Cort!
