OMF-funded Red Blood Cell Deformability Study Abstract

Written by Ronald W. Davis, PhD This paper documents that red blood cells are less deformable in ME / CFS patients compared to healthy controls. It potentially could be a biomarker, and we are proceeding to design new devices that will make a clear distinction between patients and healthy controls. These devices will be hand-held and easy…
