FDA should give CFS patients access to Ampligen!

5,059 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.

    You can end the high suicide rate of those of us with ME. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about ending this awful existence.

    Please please please get Ampligen to those of us diagnosed with ME/CFS. We have so little medical hope to treat this horrific, life stealing disease.

    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.

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