Driving research of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS),
Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Post COVID .

POWERED BY OPEN COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH

The End ME/CFS Project encompasses OMF funded and facilitated research conducted within five ME/CFS Collaborative Research Centers (CRCs). OMFCA’s guiding strategy focuses on open, collaborative research so that precise diagnostic tools and life-changing treatments can be available to people with related chronic complex diseases as soon as possible.

Funding an internationally-based research network instead of single researchers ensures the stability and collaboration essential for an outcomes-focused, transparent, and multi-pronged approach to finding answers

OMF COLLABORATIVE NETWORK

The five CRCs are working collaboratively to build a repository of data about ME/CFS and related chronic, complex diseases such as Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Post COVID-19.

This data is essential to develop diagnostic technologies, understand the molecular basis of the diseases, and uncover effective diagnostic tools and treatments.

Post COVID-19 to ME/CFS Research Plan

The current COVID-19 pandemic offers an unprecedented opportunity to understand how a viral infection may convert to ME/CFS in some patients.

The five ME/CFS Collaborative Centers have begun a unique,  extensive, in-depth longitudinal molecular study following COVID-19 patients. Their shared goal is to determine the pathways involved in maintaining long-term symptoms in some patients,  possibly converting to ME/CFS. They seek to learn about these pathways so as to develop biomarkers, novel drug targets,  new treatment, and prevention strategies.
