PANDIS Latest News
PANDIS consists of a dedicated group of Tier 1 researchers and clinicians with collaboration from renowned medical personnel from 5 countries and a support team made up of volunteers, often from the patient community, dedicated to the advancement of PANDIS. What started off as a project to look at the causation and treatment of tick-borne diseases, has now grown into research to identify and develop a deeper understanding of the causative agents in chronic disease in Australia and to provide patients with personalised treatment options.
We are delighted to announce Anthony Field has been made an ambassador of PANDIS. Affectionately known as the “blue” Wiggle, Anthony has written a book ‘How I Got My Wiggle Back: A Memoir of Healing’ his inspiring, behind–the–scenes story of how he overcame depression, life-threatening illness, and chronic pain to get his life back. Prof Guillemin and Anthony (pictured) indelibly bonded over their determination to significantly improve outcomes for vector-borne disease patients in Australia – two great men who are a force to be reckoned with!
An international study, led by Macquarie University researchers Dr Edwin Lim and Professor Gilles Guillemin, has discovered the first blood biomarker – a chemical identifier in the blood – for multiple sclerosis (MS), a debilitating disorder of the central nervous system that affects more than 23,000 Australians and 2.3 million people worldwide.
