FDA should give CFS patients access to Ampligen!

5,056 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.

    I've been waiting to try ampligen since 1990. I hope this petition works, and I hope I will have enough healthcare coverage to try it.
    Also, please do not put me on your email list

    This drug is safe. There is efficacy in subgroups. Let doctors and patients make these choices not the government.

    Considering recent developments in me/cfs, being emphatically proven through biomarkers to be physiological and not psychosomatic, and the refutation of the pace trial, it is of utmost important to make up for lost time that those afflicted by me/CFS have lost.

    One very important method is by passing Ampligen treatment for CFS

    I have read numerous first person accounts from those suffering with ME\CFS, a devastating, debilitating disease. Short of thousands of patients, families, physicians, patient advocates storming the FDA barricades to speak first hand about their pain and suffering -- it is time for the FDA to do the right thing and approve Ampligen, the only medication proven to be beneficial to the millions of Americans suffering from this horrible, life threatening disease.
