Can anyone work out what they mean by the bolded text? I suppose we'd have to read the full text to find out.
Edit: I'm not sure if I'm any clearer after reading this...
Interestingly, the controls were "deployed Gulf War veterans". The study compared a GWI+ cohort with a CWI- cohort, whereby the GWI+ cohort were patients who had all the symptoms necessary for a GWI diagnosis, and the GWI- cohort did not meet the diagnostic criteria for GWI.
Hmm, it's similar to the recent Hanson paper whereby the diagnostic accuracy only applies to the specific participants in the study. The likelihood of these specific biomarkers being able to diagnose the wider patient population seems diminishing small. It's an interesting start, but there's a lot more work to be done.
