Government position as of August 2008:
"the UK Government's plan for addressing this condition, is to investigate
the symptoms of each person who suffers from this condition on an individual
basis. The symptoms associated with this rare condition are wide ranging
and non-specific and it is important that individuals are thoroughly assessed
in the first instance by their GP, and any treatment tailored to their
Ailsa Wight Head, Infectious Disease and Blood Policy Branch, on behalf
of the Chief Medical Officer, Sir Liam Donaldson).
In the meantime,
everyday people are being affected by this disease, but are not able to
access the help and support they so deperately need.
