    The same group (NCNED) are doing another study this year (2014), collecting samples in May. It will be a follow-up to the moderate/severe study done last September/October which has led to two studies being published so far (see here and here). They are hoping to track the people from last year over time and also are looking to expand the cohort. They are looking for people with moderate or severe CFS and also healthy controls. Controls and moderate CFSers can give blood at one of the locations above, for severe CFS sufferers they will come to your place for the blood draw (Brisbane, Gold Coast regions only).

    I was part of this study (severe group) and I put the word out to my healthy friends to come along at the same time so the researchers got my blood and three healthy controls at the same time. I did bribe them with some treats.

    See this post for details including the person from Griffith University to contact.
