How We Can See ME/CFS Inflammation in the Brain
June 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Dr. Jarred Younger’s 2016 Ramsay Award was used to show that brain temperature is elevated in ME/CFS. This increased temperature is a sign of brain inflammation. The findings are now being replicated in a large group of individuals with ME/CFS.
Dr. Younger’s lab is now developing new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans that can determine whether someone is suffering from brain inflammation. The goal of this research is to conclusively show that brain inflammation should be made a primary target for ME/CFS treatment.
In this webinar, Dr. Younger will give updates on the brain inflammation research, describe the studies coming up, and discuss directions for improved ME/CFS treatment
