On November 6, XMRV Global Action noted that:

Dr. Enlander has said on his facebook page that he and Dr. David Bell will attempt to replicate the Rituximab study, and that Dr. Bell is excited about coming to work on it with the team at the new ME/CFS Center in New York City.

On November 4, the European Society for ME (ESME) facebook page posted that:

“The Mount Sinai Medical Center has opened an ME/CFS clinical and research center in New York. This has been funded by a patient of Dr. Derek Enlander who donated a matching grant of $1 million. We encourage ESME members and patients to contribute to the fund. Contact Dr Enlander at Of course we encourage this as the ESME Team, to contribute funding to this new ME center in New York.”

And in October, Dr. Enlander told XMRV Global Action that he and his team at Mount Sinai are already initiating their first research cohort.

They are looking for ME/CFS patients who are twins, and Dr. Enlander asks, “If you are a twin or know of an ME/CFS patient who is a twin, I would like you to contact me on my email -")
