    This was in my news alert, some press coverage about Dr Klimas’ work with Gulf War Illness.

    @Milo I tried the link at the top of your post. All I get is ''Bad gateway'' at the top of my screen.

    Yeah, me too, so could well be an issue with the Wink News website/server.

    That’s weird because i tried it just now and it works for me. Could it be because you are both from the UK? Could it be Science Media Center censuring this info?

    Regardless, I have copied the entire article here. There is a video and the narration is the transcript I have provided.

    Think some of you might enjoy this interview with Nancy Klimas if you have not seen it already. Similarities between GWI and ME/CFS are interesting.

    Yes the whole winknews.com seems to be down.
    It’s a server error.

    Who has an idea what that intervention might be?

    "Dr. Klimas believes a treatment for Gulf War illness will be available in about five years"

    How many times do we hear this...?

    I think it's a drug to switch off the glucocorticoid receptor. She thinks that's where the problem is. I guess we'll soon see.

    So at this point it's more of a planned trial than a breakthrough? Fingers crossed.
