OMF secured a $1 million grant to launch the first year of an international, multi-year study across the six OMF supported Collaborative Research Centers (CRC). The aim of this study is to examine Long COVID transitioning to ME/CFS.
OMF has brought together its global collaborative network, across 6 research centers to carry out this global effort in several stages, using a $1,000,000 grant made specifically for this effort. We are actively working to raise additional funding to continue this critical study.
Researchers are testing and analyzing data from individuals from the point of early COVID-19 illness through their recovery or prolonged illness state. This study has an opportunity to reveal what causes one to fully recover versus those at high risk of developing ME/CFS.
This data will be compared to the OMF-Funded Post-Viral Complications in Herpes Simplex Encephalopathy (HSE) study data to provide another post-viral contrast. This study design offers the chance to elucidate precise pathological mechanisms of ME/CFS and other post-viral illnesses, uncomplicated by factors associated with the chronicity of the illness, the potential identification of diagnostic biomarkers and potential targets for the development of treatments for the future.
