FDA should give CFS patients access to Ampligen!

5,013 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.

    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.

    Please sign this petition for all the chronic fatigue / fibromyalgia. I've suffered forty years with nothing to benefit us. This is a debilitating disease which has caused me to be home bound. Please help.
