    Brief interview with Nancy Klimas, talking about her work in ME/CFS and Gulf War Illness, as well as a section from her recent talk at Solve's Discovery Forum.

    Holy crap - that was fascinating, for all sorts of reasons.

    Thanks for posting, @Andy.

    Wow! They are doing some amazing work with Gulf War Illness. What a pity ME turns out to be clinically the same but biologically different so the same drugs they are about to try won't be relevant for us, though of course I hope it works for the veterans.

    I hope they can get the funding to do the same process for us.

    Anyone told Simon Wessely (who got his knighthood largely for his 'work' with GWI) ?

    That's just fascinating. Somebody give Klimas and her team lots of money for ME!

    Fascinating and heart breaking at the same time, so happy for GWI's but it says so much about the lack of funding for ME.

    Nancy K versus Esther C........spot the difference. A whole world of difference, or maybe two.
    Thanks for posting
