They should run some ME patients through the test, just for fun.
Recently published paper is here.
From the abstract:
i.e. the model correctly identifies 94% of people with a bacterial infection
the model incorrectly identifies 40% of people without a bacterial infection as having one
i presume the 'integrated antibiotics decision model' includes more than just the test e.g. perhaps signs of fever etc. So probably the test alone isn't quite so good.
I really hope all these Stanford people are talking to each other.
I sent an email and received a very quick reply from one of the authors. They know Dr. Montoya well and said they would bring up the idea of similar research on his cohort next time they speak.
Oh well done @halcyon. Put your feet up, your work for the day in progressing knowledge about ME is done.
He said I was the second patient of Dr. Montoya's to email him today about this, so I can't take all the credit.
