NIH Clinical Study: A Case of Continued Institutional Bias

Our friends at MEAdvocacy have once again revealed the latest “CFS study” at the NIH to be anything but a study about ME/CFS. It’s rather long and detailed and they do a much better job of explaining it than I do, so I highly recommend you hightail it over there, peruse the details and then sign the petition objecting against funds that are earmarked for CFS going toward the study of fatigue in other illnesses, because yes, that’s exactly what they’re doing.

FYI, you can find the study here. Note that if they were actually studying the disease and not the symptom of fatigue, only ME/CFS patients and controls would be included. They would also be using different criteria selections. The NIH is clearly no more ready to take ME/CFS anymore seriously than ever.
