This study seeks to understand the biological mechanisms driving the symptomatology of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) using metabolomic and lipidomic high-throughput analysis and high-frequency blood sampling over a 6.5 to 7.5 hour period conducted at two separate sites (Melbourne and Uppsala).

Long COVID Clinic Studies Study AIM The newly established clinic in Uppsala will continue the work of the OMF-Funded MultiCenter Collaborative Study on COVID to ME/CFS progression. LEAD INVESTIGATORS Jonas Bergquist, MD, PhD, Prof, Director ScD Updates and Potential IRB protocol has been approved. Clinic for recruitment opened at BMC (CRC Uppsala) and recruitment is […]

Home Visit Study

This study provides a unique opportunity to bring the lab directly into patient homes and provide immediate analysis of samples over an extended period of time.

This longitudinal approach without the invasive and/or PEM-induced measures will be vitally important in other patient cohorts and will decrease the study impact on patients from using more invasive and impactful measures (use of 1 peripheral vein catheter for all blood samples, limits the impact on patients).

Deep Proteome and Metabolome Profiling

Decode the molecular mechanisms underlying ME/CFS and contributing to specific symptoms with a particular emphasis of post-exertional malaise (PEM). This includes deep phenotyping of ME patients and global proteomic/metabolomics plasma profiling of ME..

Mechanisms That Prevent Recovery in Prolonged ICU Patients Also Underlie ME/CFS by Jonas Bergquist, MD, PhD, Uppsala Collaboration

From the Desk of Jonas Bergquist, MD, PhDUppsala University On behalf of my team at the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Centre at Uppsala University, I am pleased to share our paper entitled, “Hypothesis: Mechanisms That Prevent Recovery in Prolonged ICU Patients Also Underlie Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” was recently published in Frontiers in Medicine! Thanks in part to […]

Autoimmunity and Autoantibodies

The aim is to investigate potential differences in adrenergic and muscarinic receptor autoantibody levels in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid samples between ME/CFS patients and healthy controls.

Post-viral Encephalopathy

This study provides an excellent opportunity to understand the mechanism of long-lasting viral-induced cognitive complications, commonly referred to as “brain fog.”
