From The ME Association
“Our £60,000 rituximab fund is still available to be put towards a full-scale clinical trial”

Øystein Fluge and Olav Mella, who are running the rituximab trials in Norway
In view of the uncertainty surrounding the starting date of the proposed clinical trial that will involve a group from University College London (UCL), they have decided to extend the closing date for applications for this funding from their dedicated Ramsay Research Fund from July 2015 to July 2016.
IN A STATEMENT ISSUED ON 12 SEPTEMBER 2015, THE BOARD SAID:
“As before, any application for a grant from the MEA RRF must comply with the normal application procedures that we operate for consideration and approval of all research grant applications.
