topic title: "unraveling the cause(s) of chronic fatigue syndrome in the
post-genomic era."

dr. susan vernon is doing groundbreaking chronic fatigue syndrome research at
the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc).

her newly discovered gene expression work may someday be used as a marker for cfs. dr. vernon and her colleagues have found that they are able to distinguish between pwc's (cfs patients) and normal healthy control test subjects on the basis of their gene expression. measuring gene expression can give clues about how a cell's operation is abnormal. dr. vernon is looking at certain white cells from blood samples, looking at the communication and messages sent between cells.

this is not genetics pertaining to heredity. this research is also finding that patients can be distinguished between rapid onset and gradual onset based on gene expression differences.

come learn new findings, and understand the science behind the research.
