RemissionBiome Community Science Project

Donation protected
Remission Biome is a citizen science, patient-led project of the non-profit, decentralized research organization, Renegade Research. We are driven to improve the quality of life for patients with ME/CFS, Long COVID, and other infection associated chronic illnesses.

Our community is collectively self-experimenting with the Remission Biome protocol, which was born out of the discovery that one specific trigger, a commonly prescribed antibiotic, led to remission events for many patients. These remission events varied from minutes to days and, in many cases, led to improvements in baseline for various time periods. Remission events entail a complete cessation of all symptoms, as if the body were completely healed.
Our Funding Model

We are a philanthropically funded organization. Our funding comes from a combination of generous donors who see the potential for us to utilize decentralized research to bypass systemic barriers, such as regulatory hurdles, high costs of research and development, lack of commercial interest, research funding bias, distribution, and access barriers with open-source, accessible solutions for patients with ME/CFS and Long COVID.
Our Funders

‍Our funders share some common values, even though their access to resources varies vastly. They recognize that the current system of biomedical research is not yielding swift results or treatments easily accessible to patients, for a plethora of reasons tied up in the centralized nature of the systems, making it challenging to shake up. They want to take action, whether because they perceive it as unjust and inefficient or because they are deeply suffering from these lackluster results as patients awaiting a path out of their disabling disease.

What your donations are used for

Our participants fund part to all of the $4,300-6,000 that it costs to do the protocol on average. Through your donations, we offer financial support to those who are unable to pay the entire amount, committing to equity and fair access to our protocol, and striving for better data that truly represents our community. Not only do our participants invest financially in our research project by covering some or all of the expenses associated with our citizen science research, but they also dedicate a tremendous amount of time and effort to tracking symptoms and collecting usable data, paying it forward to future participants in the protocol.
