New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines

    I found this on the internet a while back. I think it was originally on the cover of the 25% ME Group magazine http://www.25megroup.org [The 25% ME Group is a UK-based group mainly for those severely affected by ME, which does also have Associate membership for those not severely affected].

    It came to mind following the BMJ e-letter from Sean Lynch (psychiatrist) in reply to two of my e-letters (see: http://www.bmj.com/content/347/bmj.f5963?tab=responses ). I'd like to reply to it but ideally I'd like at least one other person to reply as he's trying to shut down the discussion.

    It looks like he's also trying to make a case for more psychologically based studies!

    I don't have the wherewithal to debate - but thank you to those who do on our behalf. Such psychiatrists give me nightmares.
