The Kings Fibro Genetics study needs your support
FibroAction have been asked to help publicise a hugely important study into the genetics of Fibro -info below. Please support this research!
INFORMATION FROM THE RESEARCH TEAM
Could your DNA provide a clue to the reason for fibromyalgia? Be part of the largest genetic study ever conducted into fibromyalgia...
Are you fed up with poor treatment of chronic pain? We will be able to devise better therapies only with improved understanding of the biology of pain.
We are exploring the genetics of chronic pain by:-
• collecting 2000 samples of DNA from people with fibromyalgia/chronic widespread pain
Volunteers urgently needed!
We will ask you simply to
• fill in a pain questionnaire about you and your symptoms
• donate a blood sample at your surgery (we will send the blood taking kit)
We aim to publish the results and will post a summary of the research on the FibroAction website. If you provide an email we can provide feedback from your questionnaire.
Get in touch (0207 188 1928) and we will send you the details or click on the following link dtrsurvey.co.uk/fibrogene
