"About the study
We are looking at the link between sleep and daytime functioning in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
People with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) commonly describe problems with their sleep, often reporting both daytime sleepiness and unrefreshing sleep during the night, which may impact on daytime functioning. Research suggests that deep slow wave sleep may be altered in CFS.
In the SAFFE study we will investigate if enhancing slow wave sleep during the night can affect day time functioning.
The SAFFE study is being undertaken by the Centre for Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London, and is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) of the United Kingdom. It has been approved by London Brent Research Ethics Committee: 13/LO/0882.
Who can take part?We are currently looking for people who:
- Have a current diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome
- Are aged between the ages of 25 and 65
- Have a good grasp of the English language
- Can take part in a research study at Imperial College London."
