       The Internet chatter about the December 20, 2012 FDA AdComm negative recommendation of Hemispherx BioPharma’s orphan drug Ampligen for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) – there is currently no approved drugs for CFS  :

1)  Medscape December 21, 2012 article titled, “Rintatolimod for Chronic Fatigue Gets FDA No Vote”, identifies how the FDA Arthritis Advisory Committee voted :

     –  8 to 5 against the approval of drug for CFS

     –  4 to 9 against the adequacy of the data supporting the drug’s efficacy

     –  4 to 9 against the adequacy of the safety data

     –  8 to 5 in favor of drug’s safety profile overall, “given the severity of the illness and what some panel members felt was the absence of a serious safety signal”.
