New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    How could we, as a patient community, encourage the IACFS/ME to push in this direction? As yet, they don't even list the ICC among their case definitions.

    Thanks for this comprehensive report, Cort, must have been a lot of work.

    Interesting, is there a reference for this?

    All very interesting. Thanks Cort.

    Looks promising, but i guess a while until we get something really useful from this.
    The PHANU thing on vacines is interesting. I dont know for sure, but i had some vacines before i went on a business trip to India a while before i got ME, and i got ill after them. It may be that they caused, or perhaps more likely, contributed to my ME/CFS. So im pleased people are looking at this stuff.
