Exercise Tolerance Testing in ME/CFS:
This study aims to assess the impact of exercise on the microbiome, the metabolome, the proteome, and the epigenome. Study participants of both ME/CFS patients and healthy controls will undergo a supervised exercise tolerance test with questionnaire, blood, stool, and saliva collections before and after testing.
This study is actively recruiting Healthy Controls at the following sites:
- Stanford University (Stanford, CA): pre-screening online form for both ME/CFS Patients and Health Controls
The Lean Test:
This study aims to assess the clinical utility of the Lean Test as well as the impact of orthostatic stress on the metabolome and the epigenome. Study participants will complete a supervised Lean Test with a randomly selected subset of study participants providing blood samples before and after testing. Both ME/CFS patients and healthy controls will be needed to complete this study.
Recruitment of ME/CFS Patients and Healthy Controls will be held at the following sites:
Clinical Trials (Domestic and International Opportunities)
The NIH U.S. National Library of Medicine updates their database with on-going clinical trials worldwide. You can sort by status of the trial, eligibility criteria, location, and topic.
#MEAction is a grassroots, international organization that provides a platform to empower people with ME and related conditions and advocates for patients in the pursuit of health equality. Their mission is to continually build community and provide a voice for patients, families, and allies of ME, based on the belief that while it may be difficult to individually advocate, making activism accessible can amass a louder voice for the community as a whole.
Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) is a non-profit disease organization that works to accelerate the discovery of safe and effective treatments for ME/CFS, strives for an aggressive expansion of research funding that will lead to a cure, and seeks to engage the entire ME/CFS community in research and advocacy. SMCI serves patients and researchers alike, acting as an information and data hub for the ME/CFS community.
