    This is very much a CFS-related paper: The study reviewed 25 papers, 18 of which investigated only patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), with three more investigating ME, or ME and CFS:

    "Eighteen studies investigated only patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); remaining studies investigated a combination of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and CFS (n = 2), ME (n = 1), multiple sclerosis (n = 1), HIV-related fatigue (HRF) (n = 1), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) (n = 1), and cancer-related fatigue (CRF) (n = 1)."

    Chronic phase lipids in sera of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), chronic ciguatera fish poisoning (CCFP), hepatitis B, and cancer with antigenic epitope resembling ciguatoxin, as assessed with MAb-CTX.

    I have been following the "United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation" for the lest year or so. I just received a newsletter from them which is highlighting their upcoming symposium set for June 5-7 in Pittsburgh, PA.

    I actually found this link on their website which may have already been posted.

    The speakers at the symposium in June has some familiar names, but cannot tie them to specific research or studies.

    They are well organized and are very broad in the scope of research they pursue. I think it is definitely a disease and a area of research to follow!!
