Beginning in 2016, the aim of this study was to extend the Severely ill Patient Study (SIPS) and conduct a comprehensive “Big Data” analysis on ME/CFS patients and their families.
In 2016, Fereshteh Jahanbani collaborated with Ron Davis and Mike Snyder to launch a study with the aim of deepening our understanding of how genetic and epigenetic variations impact our health, including our susceptibility to complex diseases such as ME/CFS and related comorbidities and multimorbidities.
The study was designed with the rationale that using unaffected family members as a control group would enable researchers to identify genetic and environmental risk factors that are associated with disease development, while longitudinal multi omics profiling could help to identify biomarkers and therapeutic strategies.
Use blood from each patient to compare patients to healthy relatives and examine:
By comparing patients to healthy blood relatives, we are more likely to understand what genes cause or contribute to the development of ME/CFS. This data will also be integrated with the SIPS data.
