New Research: Gene Variations In ME/CFS



By Rachel Black in Bateman Horne Center.


In our December 2018 education meeting, we were pleased to hear from Dr. Alan Light, a Professor of Anesthesiology, Neurobiology, and Anatomy at the University of Utah. He has published more than 120 peer-reviewed articles, and has spent the last 10 years of his career focusing on the symptoms and causes of ME/CFS. He presented insights into how genes affect ME/CFS, as discovered by ongoing findings from his research team.

Potential Factors in ME/CFS Illness Onset

Genetic Variation
Light’s research is ongoing, but preliminary findings demonstrate that gene variations may yield useful information about ME/CFS. As the research is ongoing and has not yet been statistically evaluated, we cannot yet report results with any confidence. Instead, we will discuss the avenues of research that current findings suggest.
