    Previously Bond Uni but now griffith uni(PHANU) on the gold coast in Queensland are doing another study on cfs/me where they are looking for 100 cfsers to volunteer for this study on immune profile/gene expression. 2 blood tests 1 in march and the other in july.
    ncned@griffith.edu.au is where one can contact them .

    good to see them continuing to do more research.

    cheers!!

    Good to see. Presumably they're looking for fresh blood (I.e. people who haven't had any treatments yet?)

    Im hoping not. I have let them know what treatments im on (valcyte/immunovir) so hoping it doesnt exclude me. Other treatments that may exclude someone i guess would by larger doses of steriods like prednisone or other drugs that alter the immune system.

    For "locals" only? I would think you could easily get 100 in Australia, right?

    Does local mean near the uni? Or just in Australia?
