The ImmunoME study at Oslo University Hospital, Norway, is now recruiting patients suffering from severe or very severe ME. The aim of this project is to reach a better understanding of ME from a genetic and biological perspective. They are especially interested in investigating if the immune system plays a part in the development of ME. They want to make a thorough mapping of genes that are central to the immune system, to look for differences between ME patients and controls. They also want to investigate the presence of antibodies. They would like to recruit patients with the most severe form of ME. The analyses will be carried out on a group level, so they will be unable to give individual feedback to the participants. Who can participate? 18 years or older ME diagnosis according to the Canadian criteria [ICC according to REK, see below - mango] You have the most severe form of ME, or you have had it in the past (continually, for at least 10 years) When they say the most severe form, they mean people who are confined to bed almost all day and unable to work or perform activities of daily living. They are willing to do home visits, if necessary, to collect the blood samples. Investigators Benedicte A. Lie Ola Didrik Saugstad Torstein Egeland Marte K.
