Join our research: Participants needed for our HHV-6 study

Are you passionate about advancing research on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and making a difference in the lives of individuals affected by this condition? If so, we invite you to participate in our Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) Study.

What is the HHV-6 Study?

Our research team is embarking on a study designed to explore the association and temporal relationship between HHV-6 DNA concentration and the severity of ME/CFS. Herpesviruses are of interest to researchers in the ME/CFS community due to their potential to affect the immune system and overall health. By participating in this study, you can play a crucial role in advancing our understanding of ME/CFS and its potential links to HHV-6.

How can I help?

You will receive specially designed packages for saliva collection, allowing for non-invasive and convenient biological sample collection. Over six months, you will return these samples for analysis.  

Additionally, you will be asked to complete weekly symptom questionnaires online using our new CureME participant portal. 

We are actively seeking participants from the below groups.

Mild/Moderate affected individuals, specifically:

  1. Males aged 18-30 years old
  2. Females aged 31-40 years old
  3. Females aged 51-59 years old

We aim to enlist approximately 10 participants in this category to ensure a comprehensive representation of the affected population.

Please note that we are only able to recruit participants who are based in the UK.

Healthy controls:

We are also in need of healthy individuals, both males and females, aged between 18 and 40 years old, to serve as controls in our study. Your participation as a healthy control is vital in providing valuable comparative data.
