Blood Flow and Exercise in ME/CFS and Orthostatic Intolerance

Large blood cells coursing through a vein

The study aims to investigate the effects of supine vs upright exercise on cerebral blood flow, blood pressure, heart rate, and the presence of autoimmune antibodies in ME/CFS patients with orthostatic intolerance, compared to controls, to understand the underlying mechanisms and differences in symptom severity and post-exertional malaise.

25-Day Metabolite Monitoring Study of ME/CFS Patients

The study aims to meticulously analyse daily changes in metabolites from blood samples of individuals with ME/CFS over 25 days, to uncover the complex biological processes contributing to the condition and facilitate patient clustering by dynamic changes, thereby addressing the challenge of clinical and biological diversity within the ME/CFS population.

Crash-Course: Studying PEM/flares in ME/CFS, PTLDS, Long COVID

The study aims to compare biological markers during mild symptoms and flare/PEM events in individuals with ME/CFS, alongside PTLDS and Long COVID patients, using finger-prick blood samples and continuous data from wearable sensors to understand symptom variability.

AusME Biobank Biomarker Project

Two scientists, one female, one male, working in a lab. The make is looking into a microscope and the female is using a pipet.

The study aims to utilise the Australian ME/CFS biobank for metabolomics analyses and other assays to identify potential biomarkers for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, contributing to a comprehensive dataset for large-scale analysis.

BOSS-ME: Biological Outlier and
Subtyping Software for ME/CFS

This project will develop a software tool to rapidly look for metabolism anomalies in an individual which might be explained by their genes. It will also look for potentially damaging genes in individuals and it will attempt to group ME/CFS patients based on their genetic and metabolic profiles.

Itaconate Trap Study

This project aims to look at metabolic traps in central carbon metabolism that lead to observed altered energy production pathways in ME/CFS.

OMF Australia accepts donations of Cryptocurrencies

Make the most of your donation by donating your Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies directly to OMF Australia rather than selling and donating the after-tax proceeds.

  • Your tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the donated cryptocurrency (as determined by a qualified appraisal).
