Next Event: Chronic fatigue syndrome 20 July

The biological basis for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Researchers from the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) have discovered a cell recepter which could be a key contributing factor to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

CFS is a debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or tiredness that doesn't go away with rest. It can also be referred to as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).

Around 400,000 Australians are believed to be affected by CFS, many of whom are housebound or bedbound.

Lead researchers, Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik and Professor Don Staines will discuss the challenges with CFS diagnoses, clinical presentation, and treatments.

They will also share their recent research findings, such as immunological, cell signalling and genetic features in CFS/ME patients.
