Frequently Asked Questions


Will the study recruit from fatigue clinics and, if so, might that affect diagnostic accuracy?

We will be looking to recruit people with a clinical diagnosis of ME/CFS (and who pass the Cure ME diagnostic algorithm to ensure they meet the criteria being used for this research project). These recruits may include people attending fatigue and/or specialist ME/CFS clinics. We anticipate that a large number of participants will be recruited to the study through social and traditional media, and through our contacts with charities.
