IiME UK Rituximab Trial - News June 2014


The Invest in ME UK Rituximab Clinical Trial

Research Fund

Invest in ME are pleased to announce that our research fund total has now reached £336,000.

June 2014

In the week following the Invest in ME Conference 2014 events in London the charity is pleased to announce that the funding foundation behind our £200,000 pledge for the rituximab clinical trial (plus their already given £25,000 donation) have continued to show their confidence in the IiME UK project by pledging a further £25,000 to our project.

These pledges and donation are in memory of Roger Hendrie, who sadly passed away in March 2013.

We are enormously indebted to the foundation and wish to acknowledge the wonderful legacy from Roger which is enabling people with ME to hold out hope for a better future based on proper research.

The Invest in ME UK clinical trial project clinical complements the Norwegian Bergen Haukeland multi-centre clinical trial which has just received extra funding from the Kavli Fond, and for which the Norwegian government appears to have ring-fenced further funds.

We continue our efforts to raise the remaining funds.

Again we thank our supporters who have done so much to change things (see tribute to our supporters - an international event).

We thank all those who are supporting this trial and we will continue to provide information on the status of the trial as we progress.
