New ME/CFS Study – Volunteers Needed

Posted Jan 31 2013 11:30am

National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia is looking for participants for the next ME/CFS biomedical research. This study will initially examine the immune profile (gene expression) of individuals with ME/CFS.

The participants should be able to give blood at one of collection centres.

If you are interested in participating, you need to express your interest to NCNED. I can forward the original email with NCNED’s contact info to you. My email address is under “Contact” tab.

Here is extract of the recruiting email;

We are now asking for volunteers for a new study that will get underway in early March.  This study will initially examine the immune profile (gene expression) of individuals with ME/CFS.

We are looking for 100 individuals with ME/CFS to volunteer for this study.

The study will involve blood collection (March) and follow up blood collection in July 2013.

Blood collection will take place at either Logan Hospital, Griffith University (Southport) or Tweed Heads Hospital.  You can only participate in this study if you are able to come to one of the three collection centres.

If you would like to register your interest in participating please reply to NCNED.

There will be an information and consent form to complete and a separate questionnaire at the time of blood collection.

Please feel free to forward this email if you know of someone else not on our mailing list that may be interested in participating.
