On April 29, 2011, Dr. Daniel Peterson, a pioneer international CFIDS/ME researcher, gave a lecture entitled, "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, The Research Frontier," in Calgary, Canada. A summary of the lecture was written by Anne-Marie Woynillowicz Kemp.
In his lecture, Dr. Peterson noted an important study which found different protein profiles in ME patients, post-treatment lyme disease patients, and normal controls. He cited another study which identified active herpes infections in substantial percentages of ME patients. He discussed the development of a new antiviral drug.
Dr. Peterson stated that the "ME world is truly fortunate that Dr. Ian Lipkin has agreed to do two studies on ME." Dr. Peterson is doing a study in Australia on aspects of Natural Killer cells in ME. He also reviewed future research trends.
