Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), better known as chronic fatigue syndrome, is a complex chronic disease affecting some 600,000 Canadians and up to 2.5 million Americans. It’s also poorly understood: until now there has been no validated blood biomarker or test to diagnose the disease.

Researchers at CHU Sainte-Justine and Université de Montréal led by Dr. Alain Moreau have developed an innovative diagnostic test that makes it possible for the first time to test patients who cannot participate in clinical studies due to the severity of their condition.
