Patient advocates say it's time to refocus research efforts on credible science.
“We share the deep disappointment of many CFS patients and scientists that the initial data did not hold up. Whether you have been diagnosed recently or have been ill for decades, this news comes as a blow to hope for rapid advances in the care available to CFS patients,” says Kim McCleary, president & CEO of the CFIDS Association of America, in a prepared statement.
