What are your views on research progress in 2017? Increased NIH funding, 3 Collaborative Centres established. OMF finds something in the blood is stressing cells but we don't know what it is. Mark Davis looking at possibility of autoimmunity. Naviaux, suramin....not too exciting as suramin years away Intramural Study....again good but too slow. Unrest.....will it increase funding??? NIH invest 2 million in UK biobank CycloME has progressed to phase B so Phase A must have been reasonable Solve doing great work Systrum studying cardio pulmonary abnormalities in ME Few studies on energy production problems but they all finding different things as far as I know Ron Davis hoping to start clinical trials Anything else? Opinions on progress?? Bottom line is we want treatment.
