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.

    A new research article titled "Evaluating polymicrobial immune responses in patients suffering from tick-borne diseases" is now published in Nature Scientific Reports.

    Although multiple microbial infections in tick-borne disease patients may seem like a no-brainer, the existence of such patients has not been supported scientifically in the last two decades. A new research article titled "Evaluating polymicrobial immune responses in patients suffering from tick-borne diseases" supports the existence of several microbial infections in patients suffering from tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease.

    The study published in Nature Scientific Reports is highly relevant as it establishes the need to reform clinical practice and healthcare policies for diagnosing tick-borne diseases. Screening for various microbes would decrease the rate of misdiagnosis or undiagnosed cases, increase the health-related quality of life for the patients, and may ultimately drive clinical research to discover a treatment for tick-borne diseases that may include patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and not just Lyme disease.

    We definitely need better screening. It would be great if these types of comprehensive analysis were made more widely available.


    Incredible article thank you for sharing.
