I'm including a link here to a presentation given by Dr. Lucinda Bateman, of the Bateman Horne Center for ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia, located in Utah. Dr. Bateman is at the forefront of what's happening in research and eventual treatment for these illnesses. This is a presentation full of hope. I really think we've turned a corner, because ME/CFS is now being taken seriously by a lot of government entities, so a lot of research is moving forward. You might want to skip the first 18 minutes or so of the video, which go into the work of various U.S. agencies and committees. I feel hopeful that there will be drugs coming down the pike to treat ME/CFS. Currently, for instance, a group in Norway is researching Rituximab, which does help some ME/CFS patients. Dr. Jose Montoya, of Stanford, is doing a lot of research into ME/CFS. But research is happening around the world. Dr. Bateman noted that there is a big problem finding clinicians to treat patients. We all know this. How many of us have struggled to find a doctor who believed this illness has a biological basis--much less was knowledgeable about ME/CFS. Here is the link. I assume it will be moderated, and eventually will be posted.
