More Tests Added to the ME / CFS Severely ill-BIG DATA Study

ME CFS Biomarker ResearchThanks to the generous donations and increased knowledge, we have added more tests to the OMF ME / CFS Study that has been launched. We’ve uploaded an updated tests list and an updated full description of the study.

As always, Cort Johnson has done a great job in explaining what we now have in our plans in an article he wrote on Health Rising.

We are so excited that this groundbreaking initiative has received so much support, from both patients and scientists. Just imagine having a diagnostic biomarker for this disease. This is one of the main goals of this study. To do that, we plan a Phase II that will test the abnormalities in those with the disease who are more functional. And we will also run some tests in people with similar, but different diseases, to make sure we have a distinctive biomarker.

But reliably identifying ME / CFS is just the start. We are working to End ME / CFS. If you would like to join the effort, why not do your own fundraiser. We’ve got a quick “how to.” It’s easy and can be fun too.
