Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a life-altering, complex multi-system disease.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a complex multi-system disease with many symptoms that may change over time and differ from patient to patient. The most common symptoms of ME/CFS are post-exertional malaise (worsening of symptoms upon even minimal exertion), unrefreshing sleep, profound fatigue, cognitive impairment, orthostatic intolerance, and pain.
The cause of ME/CFS is currently unknown, but a combination of genetic and environmental factors appear to be relevant. There are no specific diagnostic tests or CIHR approved treatments available.
Today, the landscape of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS) research is growing with the outlook for people with ME/CFS brighter than ever.
The End ME/CFS Project encompasses OMF funded and facilitated research conducted at five ME/CFS Collaborative Research Centers (CRCs) across the globe. OMFCA’s guiding strategy focuses on open, collaborative research so that precise diagnostic tools and life-changing treatments can be available to people with ME/CFS and related chronic complex diseases as soon as possible.
