It is crucial to further the research involved with these findings as they may lead to more definitive diagnoses of ME. Who: Dr. Montoya and Dr. Zeineh at the Stanford School ...

Enrolling: Stanford Neuroinflammation Study

This study is interested in ME/CFS patients who would classify themselves in the severe category (mostly bedbound, could be housebound). Dr. Montoya and Dr. Michelle James, a neuroradiologist at Stanford University, aim to investigate the inflammatory process in the brain of ME/CFS patients.
