    A couple of weeks ago he posted on the status of the papers he talked about at the Australia conference.
    The dextromethorphan paper he refers too is a low dose treatment clinical trial for FM.

    Post from 3rd Aug 2020 - exciting that he has a lot of treatment trials that may be relevant for ME/CFS

    Not optimistic that ANY of these will help people with MECFS.

    Also not a fan of folks who call their OWN work ambitious.

    Here is a Youtube video from 2018, with Dr. Younger explaining a bit about the study and why/how low-dose dextromethorphan might work for treating fibromyalgia.

    Edit: grammar etc.

    I interpreted "ambitious" as referring to testing nine different potential treatments in a single clinical trial. Hope that clarifies.

    I too have a real hard time seeing embedded links especially in short words. It would be great if someone could tweak the colour scheme to find a way to emphasise them better.

    Sorry for the confusion, I embedded the video in my original post for better visibility.

    I havn´t watched the video or read the paper, so I don´t know what "low dose" exactly means here,
    but in general I find low dose applications much better than normal ones.

    I once tried Dextrometorphan (in normal dose) for my ME/CFS, but it worked only for one time very well.

    But I want to emphasize once more low dose and even very low dose, this might actually be a key
    (although I am talking in my case about rather special supps, and upon avoidances).

    Hope, they get some clue anyway.

    Jarred Younger is still recruiting and is looking for participants close to his lab in Birmingham Alabama. He doesn't say which particular study this. At a guess I would say this is his NIH brain imaging study.
    [He along with a colleague also has an immune cell study https://www.s4me.info/threads/track...ing-zr-89-oxinate-4-labeled-leukocytes.11625/]
