Mission WAS Possible: Update on McClure’s Inclusion in Panel to Approve NIH Grants for ME/CFS Research

  [ 18 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • February 10, 2011


UPDATE: Reportedly, many ME/CFS patients and advocates acted quickly on Mindy Kitei's Feb 3 "MISSION POSSIBLE" protest suggestion (outlined below). And it appears that, as of February 6, Dr. Myra McClure was responding to ME/CFS advocates' emailed suggestions that she withdraw from the US government's Special Emphasis Panel (SEP) for ME/CFS with the response "I already have." Further, a Feb 8 post via Co-Cure listserv, from advocate Jill McLaughlin, points out that the roster for the CFS SEP's Feb 22-23 meeting does not include Dr. McClure's name.

Mindy Kitei’s CFS Central blog entry of Feb 3 reads:

MISSION POSSIBLE: Ousting Dr. Myra McClure from the NIH Committee to Approve ME/CFS Grants.

[By way of background, Myra McClure, PhD, is a British researcher at Imperial College London who has stated publicly, “Nothing on God’s Earth could persuade me to do more research on CFS.” Yet as a member of the NIH's CFS SEP she would influence allocation of US research money for ME/CFS.]

Wrote Kitei:
“Here is an excellent protest letter written by ME/CFS patient Patricia Carter on the occasion of the appointment of Dr. Myra McClure to the Center for Scientific Review Special Emphasis Panel, which approves National Institutes of Health grants for ME/CFS. Carter has granted permission for patients to copy and paste the letter or any part of it and send to anyone who can make a difference.”
