    It is with great sadness that we write to let you know that Professor Norman Booth passed away late last week.

    Norman actively supported the
    Oxfordshire ME Group for Action (OMEGA) in the successful campaign to establish the community ME/CFS service in Oxfordshire and was a great advocate for patients over many years...

    Such a good and clever, kind and thoughtful man. I shall miss him.

    That is very sad to hear. Prof Booth was one of the authors of the Myhill, Booth and McLaren-Howard studies on energy metabolism dysfunction in ME/CFS, and 2 years ago he actually commented on a PR forum thread about these studies (his post is here).
