Spanish XMRV researchers to report Dec 9 on immune dysfunction they’ve found “in all CFS/ME patients”

  [ 27 votes ]   [ 3 Comments ]
www.ProHealth.com • December 6, 2010


Following is a news release posted Dec 6 via Co-Cure by Clara Valverde on behalf of the Spanish CFS League – Liga SFC. (Expect initial reports/recordings to be in Spanish/Catalan.)
______

“This Thursday, December 9, we are organizing a big event here, in Barcelona, in which the Spanish XMRV researchers  will explain their findings of XMRV in the Spanish CFS/ME population.

They will explain their findings regarding the XMRV, and more importantly, they will explain the common immune dysfunction they have found in all CFS/ME patients: immune deficiency due to the CD8 cells (for comparison's sake: HIV is an disease in which there is immune deficiency due to CD4 cells, and we are immune deficient because of the low CD8s).

They will also explain to the patients who will be present (we have invited patient associations, primarily) how we should live until there is a treatment for XMRV.

In the same event, we, the Liga SFC (http://www.ligasfc.org), will launch a new association of health professionals in support of ME (ASSSEM - will be at http://www.asssem.org, under construction) which will present a document we have written for patients to take to their family doctors and other doctors.

ASSSEM's strategy is to bypass the CFS units the goverment has set up (which are "fibro-parkings": they only park you with useless medication and cognitive behavior therapy) and go directly to the experts:
• Immunologists (not many in Spain),
• Infectious disease specialists,
• Virologists,
• HIV doctors, etc.

Here is the announcement of the Dec.9 event in Spanish: http://www.ligasfc.org/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=376 [click the “Translate” button for a rough English version].

The document we have put together goes beyond the Canadian Criteria because the findings of the past year or so go WAY beyond Carruthers et al. We hope bad health will not interfere too much with our translating the document to English in the next month or so.

The Dec. 9 event will be taped (in Spanish and Catalan) and posted in our website, along with the Spanish version of the document – http://www.ligasfc.org.

We (the Liga SFC and ASSSEM) have made ourselves T-shirts that say: "CFS = Immune deficiency related to the CD8 cells".

Last week, the members of the Liga SFC and leaders of the main Catalonian CFS/ME and FMS associations were given an award by the ACAF (the biggest CFS/ME, FMS and MCS association in Europe, with over 4000 members, based here, in Catalonia and which only takes Catalan members) for all our activism, in the ACAF's 10 anniversary event.

Greetings and good wishes from Barcelona, Spain,

Clara Valverde

ASSSEM

End of CDC influence in Latin America?
Posted by: oerganix
Dec 8, 2010
We who have ME/CFS and live in Latin America are thrilled that there is news, research, awareness - anything in Spanish that doesn't parrot the CDC line of BS (caca de toros). When the CDC disinformation campaign finally comes crashing down, it will liberate ME/CFS sufferers in more than the US and Europe. Even in Central America, ME/CFS patients must bear the ignorance of doctors who still believe the the disease is mental or has a psychiatric cause - an idea they got from the CDC. To have any proof that immune dysfunction is involved is a step forward. To think this will end CDC influence in Latin America is, of course, just a fantasy, but it gives us hope that bona fide research will go forward in Spanish and that the truth might go "viral". Don't think the US health burearacracy has that much power in Latin America? Within the last year Costa Rica closed down a stem cell clinic, run by and used by US doctors, because the US FDA has not declared the treatment effective and safe. On the other hand, when I told my Spanish speaking doctor about the progress of Drs. Deckoff-Jones and Snyderman on ARVs, he was all ears. To be sure, he will get the report due from Spain tomorrow. Muchas gracias, espana!
