Invest in ME Conference in May Will Feature Some Interesting Talks...

Some of the more interesting talks - for me..
  • Betsy Keller will be talking on molecular biomarkers before and after exercise - finding molecular biomarkers that predicted poor exercise outcomes would be the cat's meow...this talk really could be something.
  • B-cells - are such a frigging mystery. Nobody can get a handle on them - yet they're what Rituximab effects (or is it the NK cells that's it's really effecting in the patients that get better?) Any talk on figuring out what B-cells are doing in ME/CFS is going to be interesting
  • Chia - enteroviruses - Chia will probably have the CDC results of his stomach samples back: his hypothesis is on the line
  • Fluge and Mella - why are they speaking? They're in the middle of the trial....Has something happened? The fact that they're speaking at all is intriguing to me.
