International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Dr. Jarred Younger (University of Alabama at Birmingham) recently provided Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) with a progress update on the Ramsay 2016 Research Team 1 project.Dr. Younger is using a magnetic resonance spectroscopic thermometry (MRSt) technique to assess absolute temperature across the entire brain. He aims to describe inflammatory processes at work in the brains of individuals with ME/CFS.In the following interview, he reflects on what motivated him to study neuroinflammation in ME/CFS and how pilot grants like the Ramsay Award can jumpstart promising lines of investigation.

    Was wondering what myo inositol is and which diseases show a peak ?

    https://radiopaedia.org/articles/myo-inositol-peak


    Myo-inositol
    is one of the compounds images with MR spectroscopy (MRS) at both 1.5T and 3T and is seen to resonate at 3.5 ppm chemical shift (right of the choline peak).

    Myo-inositol is a precursor of both phosphatidylinositol (the major inositol-containing phospholipid) and of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (a key molecule in cellular signal transduction). It also plays an important role in osmoregulation 3.
