MAY BE REPOSTED
The ME Association has joined a new panel being set up by the
Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) - the UK
government body that monitors adverse reactions to drugs and
This will enable us to liase more closely with the MHRA on unproven
claims and adverse reactions relating to various treatments that may
be promoted or given to people with ME/CFS.
It also means that we can provide our members with a more rapid and
effective service when relevant adverse reactions need to be brought
to the attention of people with ME/CFS.
