New research effort into causes of chronic fatigue syndrome
Date:9/27/2011

using state-of-the-art molecular techniques pioneered at CII. Patients will be recruited across the country from five clinical sites that specialize in chronic fatigue syndrome.

During the first part of the project, they will screen for already known pathogens thought to be associated with the disease. Then they will use unbiased genetic sequencing to help them identify any novel pathogens. CII scientists will also look at patients' host response profiles the immune molecule and antibody signatures in their peripheral blood samples. This will enable researchers to get a comprehensive picture of what is happening in individual patients in relation to pathogens to which they may have been exposed and could lead to the identification of biomarkers for CFS.

Drs. Lipkin and Hornig will also collaborate with Dr. Scott M. Hammer and the inaugural Hutchins Family Fellow for Infectious Disease at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia Dr. Claire Gordon.

"This is a truly exciting opportunity to understand the causes of this often neglected disorder," said Dr. Hornig. "We hope our findings will lead to better diagnoses and the development of an effective treatment."
