Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: the biological basis (researcher talk)

Discussion in 'Upcoming ME/CFS Events' started by BaconDreams, Aug 7, 2017.

    Hi everyone,
    There seems to be some chatter on the upcoming conference at Stanford, but there is another talk that came through on the co-cure list I haven't seen around here. I'll find and copy and paste details below, but is anyone able to go to it, even though it's in Australia? Maybe perhaps record it or at least take some notes perhaps?

    Even the title seems similar to the Stanford one.

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: the biological basis

    Leneen Forde Chancellery (G34) | Gold Coast campus
    Time 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm
    date Thursday 10 August 2017

    Researchers from the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging
    Diseases (NCNED) have discovered a cell receptor, which could be a key
    contributing factor to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

    CFS is a debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or
    tiredness that doesn't go away with rest. It can also be referred to
    as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). Around 400,000 Australians are
    believed to be affected by CFS, many of whom are housebound or

    Lead researchers, Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik and Professor Don
    Staines will discuss the challenges with CFS diagnosis, clinical
    presentation, and treatments. They will also share their recent
    research findings, such as immunological, cell signalling and genetic
    features in CFS/ME patients.

    This is a free event with registration essential.

    I hope someone can give us some feedback on this. From what I remember of previous threads on these particular researchers, they seem to make big claims of discovering biomarkers based on small samples. I don't suppose they will reveal much they haven't already published in a free talk.
