Professor Doctor Carmen Scheibenbogen is an Internal Medicine physician, ME/CFS doctor and the Professor for Immunology and Deputy Chair, Institute of Medical Immunology, at the University Hospital Charité in Berlin, Germany. Her research focuses on the role of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), particularly the characterization of EBV specific B cell and T cell response and the enhanced antibody response against EBV peptides in ME versus healthy controls.[1]

Diagnostic test[edit | edit source]

Professor Scheibenbogen helped create the CellTrend Diagnostic Test which may help identify a subset of 20-30% of all patients with ME/CFS. These patients have elevated levels of three auto-antibodies, i.e., against the b2-adrenergic receptor, against the muscarinic cholinergic receptor 3 (M3) and against the muscarinic cholinergic receptor 4 (M4).[2]
