I've had some correspondence with Dr. Naviaux, here's what he told me:
"I have only been working in the CFS world for a year, but we have already made several discoveries that have a chance to offer real hope for people who have suffered for so long. We have a paper in review at JAMA. If it is published, we will have a real start on seeing CFS in a new light, and having real tools for new ways to treat patients as individuals, and not just as a patient with CFS."
Many thanks for contacting Naviaux.
I glanced at the JAMA guidelines for publication, indicating how long the process can take from submission to acceptance and it's seems remarkably fast.
So cheering this, seen against the backdrop of Wallit's obscurantism.
