A New Drug Treatment For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Is On The Horizon — by Catherine Morgan

For a condition that many doctors still claim doesn’t even exist, the idea of an actual “treatment” becoming available in the near future is so exciting to me. Currently, there is no treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Sure, I take a bunch of medicine…But these medications are only to help with the symptoms of this disease, not to treat it.

When you think about it, this is really huge! Once there is an actual treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it’s going to be a little hard for the doctors claim that this disease does not exist. Honestly, how can a disease that has a treatment not exist? Well, it really can’t. Quite frankly, I think an apology is in order. “ Yes, I’m talking to you…Mr. (so-called) Neurologist, you know who you are.”

Here’s the story…

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 11, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) — Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (AMEX:HEB) announced today that it has filed a New Drug Application (NDA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its experimental therapeutic, Ampligen (r), also known as Poly I : Poly C12U, to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (”CFS”). The Company is also moving forward as planned with filings in countries outside the United States. — read full article

So…If you’re suffering with this pathetic illness, hang in there, don’t lose hope. This could be the “magic bullet” that ends up helping you. But, even if this drug doesn’t help everyone with CFS (and it probably wont), it is a start…and there is bound to be more and more treatments developed.

Acknowledging the disease is the first and most important step…and I think we have finally taken it…even if it is just a baby step. I’m beginning to see a flicker of light at the end of the Chronic Fatigue tunnel/nightmare. I for one, will be happy to finally reach the end.
