Frequently Asked Questions


Will you be recruiting healthy controls?

No, we’d like to spend the project’s funds only on participants with ME/CFS, by taking advantage of existing data from the UK Biobank on controls (people who do not have ME/CFS).

Previous Can people from outside the UK participate? If not, why not? Would it be possible to develop an international ‘Plan B’ in parallel with planning UK recruitment efforts?
Next Will the study recruit from fatigue clinics and, if so, might that affect diagnostic accuracy?
