Good news, everyone!

A meme from Futurama. Professor Farnsworth has his hands up and open. Caption reads, Good news, everyone!

The Griffith University National Centre For Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) has announced they have been granted funding for a diagnostic test for ME/CFS. Their ground breaking research on the biomarkers of this disease has already laid the foundations for this test, and all they required was funding. I have high hopes that diagnostic test will be swiftly developed, and go a long way towards validating the experiences of ME/CFS sufferers.

You can read their press release here, and catch up on their research on their Publications page.

  1. That is some much needed good news. Hopefully if there is a step towards showing that ME is something that can be diagnosed (ie is a ‘proper’ disease) then more funding will come. I found your blog via the Colette hoo ha and have found your writing about your condition really insightful.
