Surprise of the IACFS/ME Conference: the Light Study

OFFER videos - starting to be posted on YouTube

The latest Light presentation looks like it is going to be posted soon. OFFER Utah now has a YouTube site (http://www.youtube.com/user/OFFERUtah?feature=mhum) and the 2010 Conference videos are now on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/2010-conference-videos/id404377985).

The February 2011 presentation has a link but so far only the first three slides (of 30 or so) are shown in the video.

We can start a new thread (or at least announce the videos on the original Light presentation thread).

As I recently stated on another thread, more work is on the way from Drs. Light, Light and Bateman. Alan and Kathy Light recently provided a preview of subsequent studies that are working their way towards publication at an educational meeting of OFFER Utah. Some of the interesting findings are biomarkers that differentiate between CFS and fibromyalgia (including a fibro marker that can identify patients without the need for an exercise challenge test) and a biomarker that can identify a sub-group of CFS patients.

The Lights have a number of other markers they would like to test. The primary barrier to doing so is money. You can donate through http://www.offerutah.org/donations.htm (and yes, you can request that the funds go to support the Lights or to research in general - Drs. Bateman and Singh).
