Saturday Summary 8/6/13

Exciting news! Let’s do it for ME/Invest in ME (see my plug here) have reached their goal of raising £100,000 for a biomedical research centre in the UK. Their next project is to see a Rituximab trial carried out here too, check out their blog post: http://blog.ldifme.org/2013/06/lets-fund-uk-rituximab-study-for-me.html.
This is great as it won’t be enough to have just the one trial in Norway – multiple Rituximab trials will be important to show whether the drug is a suitable treatment or not. “Independent substantiation” (several independent research results supporting the same conclusion) is generally required by law in order to license a drug for a new use.
