Seems they are working on a sensitised HPA Axis hypothesis.

Thanks TJ. I like Cort's way of writing, he really has a knack for making scientific things understandable for ordinary people. I looked at this and it seems that if it works then it is likely to do so quickly so at least they won't spend years on it!

Hi TJ, thanks for posting this. As you say, it looks like they’re attempting to rebalance the HPA axis. I actually agree that an unbalanced HPA axis is a huge issue in CFS/ME, but a drug? WHY? There are several adaptogen herbs that are proven to safely rebalance the HPA axis, albeit over a few weeks rather than within a few minutes, whilst also helping to rebalance many of the other body’s systems. So again, WHY a drug that will almost inevitably have other UNWANTED effects? Oh, silly me, of course the drug companies need more profits, bless them
