Back in March (how can it possibly be May already?), the annual International IACFS/ME Conference was held in San Francisco. I wasn't able to attend the conference, but I came across this wonderful summary that I wanted to share with you.
In this 51 minute video, Dr. Anthony Komaroff, a renowned ME/CFS specialist, summarized the main ideas from all of the biological research talks presented at the conference. It provides a great overview not only of the conference, but of the cutting-edge of ME/CFS science research right now. Even if you don't understand some of the technical points he covers here, I think you will find the scope and breadth of the research being done truly astonishing. There are many doctors dedicated to digging into the physiology of our crazy illness, and it gives me a lot of reasons to be hopeful for a better future for ME/CFS patients!
I've really fallen behind in keeping up with this sort of thing lately, so if anyone has any other resources or links to share from this conference or other sources, I'd love to hear about them.
