Sharing his exciting epigenetic research with us at the Toronto "Sick-In", Wilfred De Vega, PhD candidate at the University of Toronto, is presenting his breakthrough findings in a subgroup of ME patients at the International ME Conference in Fort Lauderdale tomorrow.

Shared from Millions Missing Canada. This research has just been published.

Canadian Researcher Patrick McGowan of UofT Toronto, presented these results at the IACFS/ME Conference in October 2016. The paper was published yesterday and this study can now be freely shared.
Will de Vega, a member of the lab, was interviewed during our October Protest outside of Health Canada.
"Our results indicate DNA methylation modifications in cellular metabolism in ME/CFS despite a heterogeneous patient population, implicating these processes in immune and HPA axis dysfunction in ME/CFS. Modifications to epigenetic loci associated with differences in glucocorticoid sensitivity may be important as biomarkers for future clinical testing. Overall, these findings align with recent ME/CFS work that point towards impairment in cellular energy production in this patient population."
