ME / CFS Severely ill Big Data Study Update: Sample Collection Completed

OMF is excited to announce that sample collection has been completed for the ME / CFS Severely ill Big Data Study. The process included processing hundreds of sample tubes immediately after collection, biobanking samples, testing samples locally, sending out for tests to other leading laboratories, keeping track of every detail and recording the results.

The completion of sample collection means we now have the most multifaceted and down-reaching data ever gathered to analyze and test in our search for a cure.

We are also tremendously grateful to the patients that gave of themselves to make a big personal sacrifice for the pursuit of groundbreaking science.
