Endometriosis Pilot Study

Donate CureCoin to fund an Endometriosis Pilot Study on the Folding @ Home Network

Endometriosis Surgery The donation campaign for this project has ended and funds have started to be converted. We will be updating our site with new campaigns soon

You can read more about the results of this campaign on the forum here


Recent data indicates that over 170 million women of reproductive age world-wide suffer debilitating pain and infertility from Endometriosis. "Endo" is linked to protein mis-folding, however there is no scientific consensus on its root cause. Theories include stem cells, genetics, and immunological factors. Women whose mothers suffered from "Endo" are up to 7 times more likely to exhibit symptoms themselves.

The ultimate goal of this study is to create minimally invasive, yet deterministic tests for Endometriosis pre-menarche (before first menses). Pre-teens at risk could be tested, and subsequently make lifestyle adjustments to prevent premature menarche, in addition to treatment with Combined Oral Contraceptives (COCs) early in puberty to dramatically reduce the risk factors of retrograde menstruation and Endometriosis. In rare cases - more aggressive treatments via puberty-suppression therapy could be explored.

Many girls with Endo enter puberty too early, while their BMI is still too low (min. BMI requirement for menarche is 23.7% ). Studies indicate worldwide age of menarche has fallen from 16-17 down to <13 as a possible byproduct of EDC (Endocrine-Disrupting Chemical) exposure. Although there are no known bio-markers for Endo (pre-menarch), we strongly feel computational biology can be leveraged to explore peripheral theories covering early menarche so "Endo" can be minimized or even prevented in future generations of young women.

This fund is the first of it’s kind, attempting to showcase the potential of CureCoin to help finance new research. Beginning a new study on [email protected] requires more than just computational power. Pande Labs would need manpower on the back-end to analyze the computational results - then conduct new experiments based on that analysis.

Update: We are officially extending the deadline for this study from 07.31.2015 to 10.30.2015.
We've begun investigating public crowdfunding (Indiegogo, Crowdster, etc.), foundations and celebrities.
If significant funds are not collected by the new expiration date, the collected coins will be rolled
into a general Folding @ Home Donation Fund.
(See "Donate CureCoins" tab at the right for CURE donation addresses).

Merge Folding Rewards FLDC and more!

The FoldingCoin Inc. team and the Curecoin team have recently had a conference call to discuss each of the projects. Though the infrastructure and protocols used for each coin differ, FoldingCoin Inc. and Curecoin are both dedicated to attracting more folders and miners into the [email protected] project.

Both teams openly shared different ideas of how to approach gaining more adoption to [email protected] and the various projects and features each are working on. The main goal here is to stop wasting energy on Altcoins that use energy for creating copycat Bitcoin blockchains.

Curecoin has made the decision to allow for longer usernames on their team. This will allow FLDC participants to earn CURE alongside of FLDC and the other Merged Folding tokens on the FoldingCoin Inc. platform. Both teams decided that this would be a great option for the Folders looking to acquire both, as our teams are here for you the Folder and the [email protected] network as a whole. Due to the nature of the way FLDC and CURE are distributed, you cannot earn CURE if you are on any team but the Curecoin FAH team 224497.

FoldingCoin Inc. will continue to develop Bitcoin 2.0 technology and smart assets to be applied to [email protected] and Curecoin will continue to develop making strides in advancing independent blockchain technology to be applied to [email protected] FoldingCoin Inc. and Curecoin look forward to continuing a positive relationship sharing our ideas and accomplishments along the way with each other in hopes that it will attract further miners to become Folders.
