The Whittemore-Peterson Institute for Neuro Immune Disease (the world’s first research center for ME/CFS and fibromyalgia) is still under construction at the University of Nevada-Reno. But the research team has ‘feet on the ground’ – and leaders say they’ll have important accomplishments to present to the world within a year.
Importantly, says Dr. Mikovits:
• “We have identified and we are in the process of isolating a new virus that may cause CFS…”
• And a blood test to diagnose ME/CFS “could be ready within a year.”
The Whittemore-Peterson Institute’s Mission & Services
Co-founded by philanthropist Annette Whittemore and Medical Director Daniel Peterson, MD, the Institute’s mission is to:
• Employ and continue building the world’s largest “bio bank” of ME/CFS blood and tissue samples, begun more than 20 years ago by Dr. Peterson and freely available to biologists working all over the world.
• Research the causes of neuro immune diseases such as ME/CFS/FM, autism, and atypical MS.
• Develop prevention strategies, diagnostics, and therapies;
• And offer a center for clinical care where these accomplishments can be applied and advanced.
ME/CFS/FM patients interested in contributing samples to the Institute’s biobank may enquire by e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org.
