    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
