THE FOURTH AWARD (2007)
PHI Grant Awarded to team at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) for Pilot Study to Identify PPS Biomarker. The researchers propose to determine whether there is a unique signature, or disease biomarker, in the immune system of individuals with post-polio syndrome (PPS) that would enable a more definitive diagnosis of PPS.
