imageEuropean ME Alliance
Welcomes Ground-Breaking Research from Norway

October 2011

The EMEA Press Release is as follows -


The European ME Alliance welcomes the research by Fluge et al...published on 19th October 2011 in Plos One.


This research clearly shows the physical basis of ME.

It also shows that patients had no difficulty in adjusting to normal life - something which makes redundant the previous attributions to psychological problems in this patient group.


Now we encourage public funding bodies in different countries to follow the example of this double blind placebo controlled clinical trial to start seriously investing in biomedical research into ME.


It is time to take this disease seriously and help patients regain their health and normal functioning.
