When You Give to OMF

Research Gains Momentum

Support our annual May Momentum Campaign, and fund research into groundbreaking treatments and a cure for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / chronic fatigue syndrome (ME / CFS). Since its inception, OMF has raised over $24 Million for ME / CFS research from private donors, making us the worldu2019s largest ME / CFS research private funder. Will you please support our annual May Momentum Campaign today, and help OMF keep up the momentum to find answers, treatments and a cure for ME / CFS?  With you on our team, we all have a reason to be hopeful!

We are announcing

THREE
major research projects throughout May!

OMF forges partnerships

between many of the world's leading ME / CFS researchers

We fund research projects with real-life implications for ME / CFS sufferers.

OMF is funding two exciting pilot treatment trials, Mestinon and Kynurenine. The outcome of this research will be to determine what biological factors might be relevant to their success or failure at treating the symptoms of people diagnosed with ME / CFS. Ultimately the data generated will help to better understand the pathogenesis of ME / CFS towards finding effective treatments.

In a rapid response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Open Medicine Foundation has launched a study to track patients with COVID-19 that have been discharged from the ICU, with the expectation that some will develop ME / CFS. The tracking of these participants will involve sample collection for testing of biological factors, continuous health tracking via wearables and symptom data collection for many separate timepoints over the course of two years.

This presents an unprecedented opportunity to study the biological factors that differentiate why some people develop ME / CFS following infection and why some people recover completely.
