I just received this notice from my local support group. I wish I were living with my daughter for this one! Volunteers Needed For Ampligen Study. The Hunter-Hopkins Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, is seeking persons with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to participate in an FDA-approved study of the drug Ampligen. Ampligen is an anti-viral immune modulating drug that has shown promise in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The treatment is administered twice weekly for 16 months. This is a crossover study, so all subjects will receive the active drug for either 6 or 16 months. There is no charge for the treatment, laboratory, or medical follow-up for this study. It is recommended that subjects live within a 1-2 hour drive of the Center. For more information or to see if you qualify, please contact the Hunter-Hopkins Center at (704) 543 9692, or write 10344 Park Road, Suite 300, Charlotte, NC 28210.
