A free leaflet all about the exciting DecodeME research study. It’s the largest ever study examining DNA in people with ME.
The £3.2 million study is jointly funded by the MRC and hopes to aid development of diagnostic tests and targeted treatments.
This week 5 new research studies have been published. We provide a lay summary of several of them.
Published letters in response to the DecodeME research announcement and recent articles. With Jeremy Hunt and Carol Monaghan.

“Managing energy is the most difficult but important factor. My advice would be to try to establish a routine to get the best balance between sleep, activity and rest.”
“The GP’s I have seen treat everyone based on symptoms rather than the whole illness itself…”
We invest in biomedical research but need your support so that we can do more to determine the cause(s) of M.E. and help develop effective treatments.
This exciting study will examine the physiology of M.E. and is led by researchers from Leicester, Oxford and Manchester Universities and Physios 4 M.E.
“The distance round the allotments is approximately 340 yards, so it should take me 14 days to reach the 2.6-mile goal,” Juan Cortlett.
