Hi MMM, yes it does look quite quiet!
I guess the FORT discussion area could be seen as a competitor to HW and as such it raises slightly awkward questions! However, I am quite into the idea of 'cross pollination' of ideas between discussion sites, if you understand what I mean and it is a UK centered offering, rather than US based, so perhaps there is not a problem. After all, we share the same goals!
Perhaps, in fairness to HW I will put a link to this site from the FORT discussion area.
FORT does look like it is backed by some serious consultant level gastroentorologists, and I like the idea of easier access to getting involved with clinical trials.
For example, the ChoPIN trial, looking at the genetics of Barretts.http://www.fortcharity.org.uk/chopin_trial.html
