(The following notice was posted Tuesday, Oct 30 by Blake Graham via the Co-Cure Listserv.)

Prof. Kenny De Meirleir & Dr. Henry Butt will be speaking to health professionals and PWMEs in Perth Saturday 3rd November 2007 on ME/CFS. The time: 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. The location: Social Sciences Lecture Theatre, University of Western Australia. The event is sponsored and organised by the ME/CFS Society (WA). (For more details, please phone 08 9346 7477 or e-mail mecfswa@cnswa.com)

A majority of patients with ME/CFS report gastrointestinal symptoms and dysfunction, alongside other common symptoms such as cognitive difficulties, muscle and joint pain, neurological disturbance and abnormal persistent or fluctuating fatigue.

Prof. De Meirleir will discuss evidence indicating ME/CFS patients have a compromised lining of their gut similar to that found in HIV. He will explore links to evidence suggesting the gut of patients is infected with bacterial and/or viral pathogens and how this may contribute to an altered immune state. Prof. De Meirleir will describe treatments that have successfully restored the gut lining of patients and led to a significant improvement in multiple symptoms.

Dr. Butt will discuss evidence indicating significant changes in the normal bacterial population found in the gut of ME/CFS patients. He will explore a close correlation between the severity of symptoms reported by patients (cognitive dysfunction, gastrointestinal symptoms, pain and fatigue), the degree of changes observed in the population of gut bacteria, and the quantity of microbial bi-products produced and released into the body.

Prof. Kenny De Meirleir, MD, PhD, is Professor of Physiology, Pathophysiology, Internal Medicine and Sports Medicine at Vrije Universiteit, Brussels, and Clinical Professor, University of Nevada Medical School, USA. Dr. Henry Butt, MSc, PhD, is Director, Bioscreen Laboratory, and Senior Fellow (Hon) at Bio21 Molecular Science & Biotechnology Institute, University of Melbourne.

Venue: Social Sciences Lecture Theatre, University of Western Australia.
