Dr. Fluge has been courageous in pursuing his observations on the effects of rituximab on ME / CFS patients when that issue was not the planned focus of his investigation. He has now completed a double-blind, well-controlled, multi-center clinical trial on the effects of Rituxamab, and will discuss those results upon receiving notice of acceptance of his publication. He has continued to follow where the data lead him into cellular and molecular analyses. This kind of excellent, open-minded science is just what we need in our quest for an end to ME / CFS.
Dr. Fluge is the Senior Consultant supervising the ME / CFS research group at the Department of Oncology and Medical Physics at the University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen, Norway. Drs. Fluge and Mella work together on the Norwegian Rituximab and cyclophosphamide trials with ME / CFS patients.
