Professor Donald R. Staines, MBBS, MPH, FAFPHM, FAFOEM, is a Clinical Professor at Menzies Health Institute Queensland and the co-director (alongside Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik) of the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) at Griffith University in Queensland in north-eastern Australia.[1] His research team is working towards discovery of diagnostic tools and treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome.[2]

International Consensus Criteria[edit | edit source]

He is one of the authors of the 2011 case definition, International Consensus Criteria.[3]

Diagnostic test[edit | edit source]

In February 2016 the research team led by Donald Staines and Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik announced it had created a diagnostic test for the disease using CD8 T cells.[4] They have been awarded a $4-million grant to be administered during the next five years that will enable them to continue research into developing a diagnostic test for ME/CFS.[5]

Open Letters to The Lancet[edit | edit source]

Three open letters to the editor of The Lancet urged the editor to commission a fully independent review of the PACE trial, which the journal had published in 2011. In 2016, Dr. Staines, along with 41 colleagues in the ME/CFS field, signed the second letter. In June 2018, Dr. Staines signed the third letter, this time along with approximately 100 colleagues.
