Let's C Research!
Let's Do It for ME is a patient-driven campaign supporting the work of the charity Invest in ME Research (IiMER) on developing a UK Centre of Excellence for ME and fundraising for their biomedical research to establish diagnostic tests and treatments for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
The IiMER biomedical research strategy got underway in October 2013 at Norwich Research Park, the hub of the IiMER Centre of Excellence for ME.
The focus of the research is on the role of the immune system including autoimmunity whereby the body attacks its own cells or tissue. As most of the immune system is in the gut, this was the starting point for the research.
As trials of the drug rituximab (B cell depletion therapy) in Norway showed promising results for ME patients, IiMER planned a UK rituximab trial, starting with research on B cells at University College London in 2014,
This research is being done by UK experts in their fields and with international collaboration, initiated by Invest in ME Research and funded by donations. Let's keep it going!
