    The CFS Research Foundation Website http://www.cfsrf.com
    recently came back online after a gap of many weeks.

    "The Foundation Newsletter" (published this time last year): http://www.cfsrf.com/pdf/Newsletter-10.pdf
    and
    "The Appeal for Funding"
    http://www.cfsrf.com/pdf/Appeal.pdf

    give some details of the gene expression research, being led by Dr. Jonathan Kerr, that they are helping to support (Dr. Enlander in New York is involved with this).

    The Publications page:
    http://www.cfsrf.com/Publications.htm
    contains a lot of the full papers they have supported over the years (although the full papers for their latest two papers have been taken down).

    In a letter to their supporters, the CFSRF http://www.cfsrf.com have recently said, about the gene expression research which is their focus at the moment: "Dr. Kerr is now building up his team to take this project into its second stage when he hopes to devise a laboratory diagnostic test and he is also making plans for clinical trials."

    I have heard that the clinical trials may start as early as March. I don't know what they are testing at this stage.

    Fingers crossed they get the money to keep going. Immunesupport.com have given them money so think you can nominate them as a charity to support if buy supplements on this site.
