NVCBR Researchers Close In On A Diagnostic Test For ME/CFS Patients

NVCBR researchers close in on a diagnostic test for ME/CFS patients
Physicians lack effective tools to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of those who are impacted by ME/CFS, a complex and often disabling disease. That could change now that scientists at Nevada Center for Biomedical Research (NVCBR) have taken the first step in developing a clinical assay for diagnosing ME/CFS patients through the creation of an antibody immune signature.
The work was conducted in collaboration with Drs. Stephen Johnston and Phillip Stafford, at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute, Innovations in Medicine, and Drs. Karen Schlauch and Richard Tillet, from the University of Nevada, Reno, as well as other researchers from around the world.
The group’s findings recently appeared in the prestigious journal Molecular Neurobiology https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12035-016-0334-0.
