I’ve been asked to thank all those who volunteered to take part in Prof Hunter’s Research Programme that is investigating why some patients need more frequent treatment than others. We appealed for members who manage perfectly well on the 3-month regime in the UK.

We now have more than the required number of participants and consent forms were sent out yesterday (Saturday) and as soon as we receive those back we will send out the sample containers.

Now we need to start recruiting the ‘control’ group – at least 12 people who have no symptoms, have had their B12 levels tested in the past year and showed no deficiency – normal healthy people.

If you know of anyone who would be willing to take part please email Taylor so that we can add him or her to our database.

We’re getting there!
