FDA should give CFS patients access to Ampligen!

5,018 Signatures Goal: 8,000

An estimated 4 million US citizens and 20 million worldwide are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS/ME[CDC, CFIDS]. It's a life-threatening illness, as debilitating as MS[CDC]. There is no cure and no FDA-approved drug treatment.

Rintatolimod(Ampligen) has been undergoing FDA trials for over two decades and has benefited a great number of patients to no end and without ill effect.

An FDA Advisory Committee has recently seen fit to block marketing of Ampligen, even though they voted it safe for approval. Instead of encouraging drug companies to pinpoint the subset(s) of people who respond so well, theyexpect sponsors to attract millions of dollars without a return.Ampligen is safe and has been available in places like Canada and Brussels for 17 years.There is no alternative.

We urge the FDA toApprove Ampligen now.

Thanks to the efforts of people like patient/advocate Mr. Robert Miller, the FDA is inviting patients to attend its ME/CFS Stakeholder Workshopon April 25 and 26, 2013.

    Please approve the drug halogen. I was diagnosed in 95. I have been waiting and suffering two decades. I fear I won't make another. There are so many of us waiting.

    CFS affect millions of people, and there is a drug on the market that could improve their quality of life. The FDA says it's safe, so why not make it available to the people who need it. Stop this needless torture! I have a friend who needs this drug and it really saddens me when she is bed-ridden and just miserable in her suffering. Approve and make Ampligen available on the market now!

    Why has this illness with millions afflicted, including myself, been so ignored when funds are allocated for diseases with far fewer sufferers and in some cases, less illness? It really is a mystery to me and it is cruel and unethical to make so many of us suffer for so long.
