STUDY HYPOTHESIS AND DESCRIPTION
Identifying ME/CFS biomarkers will aid in the development of disease risk prediction and improve the clinical stratification of symptomatic patients. Ultimately, the discovery of biomarkers may lead to diagnoses that are more accurate, disease prevention measures, and indications on how to treat ME/CFS effectively.
We also we intend to investigate specific targets to determine their clinical utility for the elaboration of novel therapeutic approaches to treat the main symptoms associated with ME/CFS (e.g., PEMS, POTS, sleep disturbances and fatigue). We intend to develop better clinical tools allowing clinicians to diagnose ME/CFS and select the best treatments to address their medical needs.
Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMFCA and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
OMFCA sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.
