To learn more about this follow-up study you can watch the video from Paul Fisher to learn about the results of the first study on this thread
Paper on initial study here
Some good news on the Emerge Facebook page - It looks like they have the healthy controls they need. And interestingly they are also performing a skin biopsy on the arm (as posted by @Andy above).
From the comments it seems they also have home visits for severe ME folks in the works too.
There is an updated description of the study showing 3 visits over 3 years rather than just one visit, and patients must be diagnosed by a clinician according to the Canadian Consensus Criteria.
If you follow the link there is more info about the skin biopsy and it shows the study is funded with $360,000
