The First Draft of the Common Data Elements for ME/CFS is Ready for Review

The first draft of the ME/CFS Common Data Elements (CDE) project is now available to review, conducted by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
Read the first draft of the Common Data Elements for ME/CFS here.
The purpose of the CDE Project is to standardize the collection of investigational data in order to facilitate comparison of results across studies, and more effectively aggregate information into significant metadata results.
