$133K awarded to study of chromosome changes in CFIDS at Wayne State

The National CFIDS Foundation, based in Needham, MA (www.ncf-net.org), in collaboration with The Nancy Taylor Foundation for Chronic Diseases, of Tulsa, OK, have announced their latest research grant aimed at assessing disease damage in patients with CFIDS (CFS/ME).

The research will be led by Henry Heng, PhD, at the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit. It will utilize an advanced type of genomic testing to look for chromosomal aberrations (termed “genomic instability”) in ME/CFS patients.

Dr. Heng has published extensively on this field of science. His group has used the testing technology (spectral karyotyping or SKY analysis) to significantly increase medical knowledge about cancer progression and the importance of chromosome aberrations in this process. They have also used SKY analysis to find evidence of genomic instability in patients with Gulf War Illness. (See the 5-part YouTube series on the Wayne State GWI study, which was designed to determine if the illness is 'real' - “Gulf War Illness – Conspiracy Test.”)

The objective in the new study is to evaluate whether the process may reveal similar instability in CFIDS/ME, essentially demonstrating it is real, as in the GWI study.

The National CFIDS Foundation has awarded $1.2 million to ME/CFS scientific research since 2002, and dedicates 100% of donations to research unless otherwise specified by the donor.

People should never forget that real health depends how well you take care of yourself and not what health insurance you carry but I agree health insurance is important for every one. Search "Penny Medical" or online for dollar a day insurance plans.
