    Yes they talk about extreme exercise but what if in ME the bar is just so much lower for this effect to take place (ie endotoxin leak through gut lining into bloodsteam following less than extreme strain) AND/OR the subsequent calming down of the immune system does not take place as it should ... and voila PEM?

    The study (abstract) itself, even more interesting considering IL-8 also correlated

    Fascinating! And potentially a very useful avenue of exploration for ME... I wonder....

    I'd been very slow to recover from a viral infection, labeling myself chronically fatigued. 3.5 years later, traveling in Europe during the 2003 heat wave, my body collapsed into ME.

    Are there statistics that show extreme exercise has ever induced a case of blood poisoning or are the authors suggesting that the same blood changes occur as sepsis? I have no idea or even if they are saying something completely different.

    I think the big question is if this can be extrapolated to a more sedentary population as well as me/cfs.

    The study also says possible link which is not the same as cause and effect.

    Indeed interesting.
