    I just found out that there are some double-blind, placebo controlled Ampligen studies, still enrolling. These would only give you a 50-50 chance of getting Ampligen, but compare that with our current 0% chance, until the drug clears the FDA's red tape... latest word is this winter, but if tests are still taking place, it's doubtful. It could be another year. And, in a double-blind study, the drug would be free, rather than the current $20,000 cost recovery! The loations are:
    1. Dr. Paul Cimoch, Fountain Valley, Calif.
    2. Dr. Joseph John, New Brunswick, N.J.
    3. Dr. Robert Keller, Hollywood, Fla.
    4. Drs. Ronald Moss and Alex Mercandetti, San Diego, Calif.
    5. Dr. Daniel Peterson, Incline Village, Nev.
    6. Dr. Richard Podell, New Providence, N.J.

    You can get more info at www.cfids.org. Hope this helps. Kelly

    Please do let us know what they say. I for one would be interested in where theyre at with this. I think they say this is the last round of testing before the FDA approves it.....AMY
