From Asha Baxter
AIMS Research Coordinator

We are finished with the blood collection for the 2nd study! This is the replication study of the intial “Metabolic features of chronic fatigue syndrome,” with the replication testing being done with Dr. Paul Cheney’s patients. The blood samples are all in and have been shipped to the Naviaux lab to be analyzed. Very exciting accomplishment since the 1st study took a great deal longer to get samples in. We are moving in a upward and onward direction. Metabolic results and a new published study should be expected in 2017.

We also have found a device that stores and holds blood for shipping so we can start collecting samples from around the world. We know that we have a growing community of individuals who would like to participate in our AIMS research from over seas. We are still in testing mode with this and will update when we have confirmation that the container safely transfers blood.

If you would like to participate in the Analyzing Individual Metabolimics Study (AIMS), sign up now to be placed on the list.
