    I just read this. It's a hypothesis paper so no new data although it does draw together some data from CFS and other areas (which might be new to people) e.g. anti-TNF drugs have been tried in Alzheimers' Disease

    Section on graduated exercise therapy (GET)

    It has a section on graduated exercise therapy (GET).

    Nothing definitive but I know lots of people are interested in mentions of it:

    A quick response before reading in full Dolphin - it is good to see some serious hypothesising now.

    I like the sound of this, from what I have read!

    Does anyone know if the full text article has yet been published as this abstract in April was 'Epub ahead of print'? (This is a different question than, which author and publication which has already been asked).

    It can be consideded as published from when it was made available as a full article i.e. can be quoted already. I have no idea when it might be in a print edition.

    Sounds plausible and certainly ties in with my own subjective feelings of brain inflammation and with Maes' gut permeability leading to inflammation paper.

    As the paper points out, inhibiting TNF alpha may not be a good thing with a dysfunctional immune system or if there is persistent infection.

    There are a range of natural TNF alpha inhibitors :

    I tend to use curcumin.

    Given the above caveats it might be best to try a compound that inhibits TNF alpha plus has an anti-viral action.
