Given the complexity and number of diverse symptoms reported by people who experience this unexplained skin condition, CDC is undertaking a measured and thorough scientific investigation which offers the best chance for finding useful answers. CDC is conducting this study along with Kaiser Permanente’s Northern California Division of Research. The study was designed and is being led by CDC.
The primary goals of the study are to learn more about who may be affected with this condition, the symptoms they are having, and what factors may contribute to the condition. The study involves: Determining the clinical and epidemiologic features of this condition; examining skin biopsies from affected patients; characterizing foreign material such as fibers or threads obtained from persons with the condition; and estimating rates of illness among the study population.
