In 2010 organiseert Invest in ME wederom een groot internationaal kongres, dit maal
onder het motto "A New Era in ME/CFS Reserach" (een nieuw tijdperk in ME/CVS research).
Sprekers zijn onder meer dr. Judy Mikovits (XMRV), dr. Jonathan Kerr (gene expressie),
dr. Nancy Klimas (afweersysteem), dr. Paul Cheney en dr. John Chia (enterovirussen).
Een belangrijke (neven)doelstelling is het informeren van medisch personeel/hulpverleners.
A New Era in ME/CFS Research
Educating Healthcare Providers in
Management, Treatments and the Latest Advances in Research into ME/CFS
Datum: 24 mei 2010
Lokatie: One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London
Education of healthcare staff in ME/CFS
With the recent discovery of
the xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) retrovirus in patients with ME/CFS
by the Whittemore-Peterson Institute, the US National Cancer Institute and the Cleveland Clinic of Ohio,
we are witnessing a major breakthrough in the understanding and treatment of ME/CFS and in the implications in ME/CFS.
The education of healthcare staff about ME/CFS
now needs to break with the past and
reflect the new found knowledge about
the pathogenesis of ME/CFS
which high quality biomedical research is providing.
The conference will be oriented toward
providing healthcare staff and others
with knowledge of the latest research and the biomarkers
which allow appropriate treatments to be prescribed.
The key to resolving, treating and curing ME/CFS lies in biomedical research.
Our 2008 conference in London focused on Sub Grouping and Treatments and
showed indisputable proof from leading ME/CFS experts regarding the pathology of this illness.
Our 2009 conference concentrated on the severely-affected people with ME.
However, apart from a knowledge of the biomedical research which is ongoing
it is necessary for healthcare staff to be aware
of the multiple symptoms exhibited by ME patients and
of the possible treatments available.
Research data and experiences of managing and treating ME/CFS will be presented
as will findings from the latest biomedical research.
The time is right for moving ahead with new findings.
The presenters at the conference represent the world's most current ME/CFS knowledgebase regarding ME/CFS.
