Our mission is to create a Think Tank where top scientists from relevant fields can discuss current ME knowledge in order to determine the most crucial direction of future research, and to provide a reliable source of cutting-edge ME information that ESME will incorporate in the education of medical professionals.
The board members and volunteers of ESME would like to inform you that we will be closing ESME (the European Society for ME) before the end of 2012. ESME’s website will be accessible for approximately 1 year, but no new information will be added. The donations that were given to ESME will be given to a project to test Rituximab, as we believe this project has the potential to benefit all ME patients.
ESME recommend that: Researchers use the ICC exclusively and call the disease ME in all written documents about their research. Government agencies/foundations give research grants to scientists using the ICC. Government agencies/institutions officially adopt the ICC and post them on official websites. Doctors use the ICC to diagnose patients and write only ME G93.3 in patient journals or in all written documents about these patients. Advocates/patient associations speak with one voice by agreeing to call the disease ME.
Is there a need for an European Forum for (ME) parents with kids with ME/Fibromyalgia/autism/ADHD?
The European Society for ME (ESME) is pleased to announce that Prof. Dr. Luc Montagnier is an honorary member of our organization. He has been an honorary member since May 2nd, 2010 and was also patron of ESME’s launch meeting in Norway (June 2009).
An overview of the panel members in the ESME Think Tank .
The Canadian, Australian and British governments have all banned ME patients from donating blood. We, the Think Tank panel of ESME, applaud their actions and believe that a similar ban should be issued in all European countries. ME patients should be banned from donating blood.
These sponsors have made ESME a reality!
Ten leading scientists in Europe have formed a Think Tank for ME and will hold their first meeting on the 13th of June 2009. They want to initiate an effective research effort to find the secret behind the mystery disease that cripples an increasing number of lives.
ESME can help you quickly and efficiently spread information about ME/CFS through our extensive database. Ordering flyers is possible.
More Biomedical Research Needed. ESME will encourage research leading to the accumulation of new knowledge and to a better understanding of the disease, and will endeavour to raise funding for biomedical research in, and education about, ME.
