After a rather long delay, the DVDs of this years’ Invest in ME conference are now available. One of the talks is given by Øystein Fluge and Olav Mella, the two men who led the research at the Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, Norway, which has recently been published – they give a lot more details of the research in their talk than has been given in some of the press releases and I would certainly recommend watching it.
