October 26, 2020 GMT

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 26, 2020--

EpicGenetics announced a contract with the Mayo Clinic Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Clinic to perform research to investigate the use of the EpicGenetics FM/a® Test to determine the test’s use and applicability to objectively diagnose fibromyalgia.

“This collaboration is of tremendous importance to the estimated 20+ million patients in the United States who suffer from fibromyalgia,” said EpicGenetics CEO Dr. Bruce Gillis. “To have the Mayo Clinic investigate a faster and cheaper diagnostic methodology has significant benefits.”

Bruce Gillis, M.D., M.P.H., the CEO of EpicGenetics has been a tireless advocate for fibromyalgia patients since he and a research team at the University of Illinois, College of Medicine at Chicago discovered unique immune system, cellular and protein abnormalities which are associated with the disease of fibromyalgia. EpicGenetics developed the FM/a® Test by building upon these specific white blood cell and consequential protein production abnormalities. The FM/a® test significantly reduces the time and costs of accurately and objectively diagnosing fibromyalgia in affected patients.
