We are asking your help to continue to push for treatments for ME/CFS. Our ME/CFS Treatment team will continue to work for meetings between the FDA and pharmaceutical companies with the sole purpose of urging them to develop and approve drugs to treat ME/CFS. People with this disorder must not be forgotten!
Why were 6000 Princeton students given the option to try an FDA-unapproved drug for a disease that struck only seven students when more than a million people with Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) are denied access to a drug that ME/CFS expert practitioners whole-heartedly endorse? Ours is a serious disease also! And people are dying from its effects.
Severely ill patients with no other options available to them should be allowed to decide, in consultation with their physician, whether to try Ampligen, under suitably managed conditions! The FDA can find a way to make this happen.
