Scientists have long suspected that genetic factors can predispose certain people to experience chronic pain in intensities others don’t. But now research has backed this up by identifying the specific genetic mark-up scientists think may be responsible.Some of the world’s leading researchers in neuroscience and immunology have gathered on the Gold Coast for an international science symposium on chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Symposium co-organiser Dr Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik said for the next two days top scientists from around the world will focus on the current state of research into CFS and help set a focus for research in the future.
“The objective is to bring new research ideas and different approaches to explaining and treating this disabling condition,” she said.
It’s the first conference to pull together scientists involved in chronic fatigue syndrome research and others who haven’t worked closely in the field but whose insights and research skills may help us better understand this debilitating disease.
