FDA should give CFS patients access to Ampligen!

5,050 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.

    A very dear friend of mine suffers from ME. Without Ampligen her quality of life will decrease and she will not be able to function to her highest potential.

    Drugs were rushed when AIDS patients suffered. Our quality of life is less than COPD or Congenitive Heart Failure patients. It took 30 years for my diagnosis and a year later I am still receiving no treatment. There are more of us than have breast cancer. Refusing drug options to a desperate group is immoral.
