The Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s professional publication, Pharmaceutical Journal, has run a feature on the rituximab trials and how these could be revealing the underlying mechanisms of the illness.
Although the rituximab trial results have already been covered elsewhere in research journals, and on the M.E. news and charity websites, to my recollection this is the first article on M.E./CFS in the “trade” journals and magazines for pharmacists. This means it will raise a significant amount of awareness in the pharmacy profession.
