Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS) Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia Leading Research. Delivering Hope.Open Medicine Foundation® Canada

Driving research of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS),
Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Long COVID.

We take a multisystem approach

Neuroendocrine

6 Neuroendocrine Studies
"Neuroendocrine" refers to the interactions between the nervous system which controls body functions through nerve impulses, and the endocrine system that regulates body functions through hormones.

Immune

3 Immune Studies
The immune system defends the body against infections and diseases, helping to maintain overall health.

Cardiovascular

3 Cardiovascular Studies
The cardiovascular system, comprising the heart, blood vessels, and blood, is responsible for transporting oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and waste products throughout the body.

Metabolism

10 Metabolism Studies
Multiomics is a scientific approach that can include genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and transcriptomics to get a comprehensive understanding of biological systems. Abnormalities in carbohydrate, lipid, and amino acid metabolism have been observed.

Genetics

1 Genetics Study
Genetics may contribute to an individual's susceptibility to multisystem disease, including variations in immune system genes, genes involved in energy metabolism, and genes related to neurotransmitter function.

Multiomics

12 Multi Omics Studies
Multiomics combines various omics technologies such as genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics.

Diagnostics

11 Diagnostic Studies
Diagnostic studies will help identify specific biomarkers towards differentiating between ME/CFS and illnesses with similar clinical presentations.,

 

Treatment

2 Treatment Studies
Treatment studies evaluate the efficacy and safety of potential interventions. Focusing on repurposed drugs could quickly provide evidence-based guidelines for healthcare providers.

 

Systems Biology

4 Systems Biology Studies
Systems biology is an interdisciplinary approach that can help identify key pathways, biomarkers, and potential therapeutic targets.

Pathogens

4 Pathogen Studies
Infections can trigger or worsen a wide range of symptoms.
