Lyme disease $8.263 million (prevalence of 24,400 to 240,000 - CDC)
Prion disease-$4.71 million (421 cases in 2012 - CDC)
ME/CFS —$4.462 million (prevalence of 1 million - CDC)
For FY2013, the CDC asked for more funding for other emerging
infectious diseases, but asked for less funding for ME/CFS and prion diseases. The overall
funding in that area of the CDC increased, but not for ME/CFS.
