Overview The objective of this research study is to look in-depth at the clinical and biological characteristics of ME/CFS. Participants with ME/CFS are inpatients at the clinical center at NIH for approximately two weeks on their first visit and another two weeks if they return for the second round of the study. There will be

Who: Michael VanElzakker, PhD, Massachusetts General Hospital/ Harvard Medical School is looking for participants living in, or near the Boston area to join his study. What: Participants will rest on their backs in a high-resolution MRI machine that is capable of measuring both the concentrations of certain chemicals and the movement of oxygenated blood in the brain.
Listen to the article: Who: Doctors from Columbia Medical center are interested in creating a mobile app called “my ME/CFS” for those with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). What: A survey that would provide information to doctors that are aiming to create this application; the app would provide a place for individuals with ME to report
Overview The NIH is currently looking for volunteers with ME/CFS to participate in a focus group that will be used to learn more about PEM in daily life as well as to hear about your experiences with Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) if you have experienced it. They are particularly looking for people in the
As there is currently limited research on pediatric ME/CFS, the purpose of the study is to improve our understanding of the symptoms and experiences of youth with ME/CFS by conducting a research survey. Who: The Center for Community Research at DePaul University When: Ongoing What: We would like to invite children/adolescents (ages 5-17) with myalgic
Researchers at Stanford University have discovered that the brains of patients with ME display abnormalities in the white matter within the right hemisphere. 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 of Medicine When: Ongoing What:
I’m a researcher at NYU interested in the experiences of people with ME/CFS in the U.S.
The InTime Trial aims to assess the effects of the investigational drug, CT38, in terms of its safety and effectiveness in treating ME/CFS. There will be 18 people between 18 and 60 years of age enrolled in this study and participation will last up to approximately 4 months. Who: Dr. Lucinda Bateman, Located in Salt
Researchers from Stanford University aim to evaluate the endocrine system in female ME patients to learn how the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenall (HPA) axis functions in ME/CFS patients. They will do this by evaluating antibodies in 60 ME/CFS cases and through basic endocrine testing. Who: Dr. Montoya at Stanford University is collaborating with Dr. De Bellis at Secondary University at Naples to
Cornell Center for Enervating Neuroimmune Disease aims to collect brain images (MRSs) from individuals with ME to study oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. Dr. Dikoma Shungu hopes to identify possible biomarkers for ME as well as add to the overall understanding of the disease. Who: Cornell Center for Enervating Neuroimmune Disease is collecting information from both ME patients
