Jody Smith continues her review of INIM’s Patient Conference with a look at Dr Irma Rey’s presentation.
In the fourth video of the Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine’s Patient Conference in January, Dr. Klimas introduced Dr. Irma Rey, Assistant Professor of Medicine, of the Department of Clinical Immunology. Dr. Rey is also Director of Medical Education, Nova Southeastern University, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Institute of Neuro-Immune Medicine.
Without Dr. Rey, none of what is happening at NSU for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Gulf War Illness would be possible, Dr. Klimas said.

Jody Smith continues her review of Nova’s Patient Conference for Dr Klimas with a look at three patients who have improved significantly.

CBS News was in Miami yesterday filming the Miami Coral Gables CFIDS Group meeting with Dr. Klimas. According to reports Dr. Klimas met with them after the meeting to do an interview about the PACE trial and Dr. Natelson’s new study validating a previous study finding abnormal proteins in the spinal fluid of ME/CFS patients indicating neuroinflammation.
If this is a validation of the Dr. Baraniuk’s spinal fluid study we’re in real luck because we’ve heard that his own validation of the study should be coming out shortly. Thus we may have two studies coming out one after another indicating neuro-inflammation is present in the brains of people with chronic fatigue syndrome.… Read More
