Norwegian researchers have commenced phase II trials of the anti-cancer drug cyclophosphamide on ME/CFS patients.

Led by senior consultant Dr Øystein Fluge and Prof Olav Mella, the team is focusing on non-responders and those patients who have relapsed after treatment with rituximab, a B-cell depleting drug.
