NIH to Host CFS Research Workshop

"Neuro-Immune Mechanisms and CFS: Will understanding central mechanisms enhance the search for the causes, consequences and treatment of CFS?"

The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will host a scientific workshop designed to enhance understanding of chronic fatigue syndrome by examining the interface between the brain, immune system and symptoms of CFS and related disorders. The workshop will be held June 12-13, 2003 at the Bethesda Marriott Hotel. Dr. Leslie Crofford of University of Michigan and Dr. Dedra Buchwald of University of Washington will chair.

Scientists from NIH and academic institutions, representing diverse disciplines will explore the mechanisms by which hormones, cytokines and other mediators act as intermediaries between the brain and other body systems. The potential application of new technologies in the study of these mediators and their central and peripheral actions will also be discussed. NIH intends for these deliberations to form the basis for future interdisciplinary initiatives.

Presentations will be given on the HPA axis, autonomic nervous system, neuroactive drugs, sleep, imaging studies (including PET and functional MRI scans), genomics and more. Dr. Vivian Pinn, ORWH director, will deliver opening remarks followed by introductory talks by Drs. Crofford and Buchwald.

The meeting has been organized by ORWH and the Trans-NIH Working Group for Research on CFS. Continuing medical education units will be available to medical professionals.
