    Not commenting on the safety or otherwise of HPV vaccine, I know nothing much about that topic.

    Just posting this to show that it is possible to move Cochrane to review their own reviews - in an urgent fashion no less. Time will tell the quality of the review of the original review.

    Shows you just how little respect they have for ME patients.

    It’s not possible to include testing on people with every possible illness. In our case, vaccines in general are contraindicated, so you can’t ethically test on people whom you know to have M.E

    The difference (in this case) is that prominent people involved with the Cochrane collaboration were the ones making the criticism.
