    This isn't ME/CFS research and I had an ME moment about where to put this thread. I should have put it in the "other research" section. I can't delete this now. Dear @Kina or @Sushi you might wish to move the thread. Sorry.

    Not sure what I make of this paper at all, but felt it should be flagged up.
    @Jonathan Edwards you might be interested in seeing if this is up to scratch or interesting. I haven't read it properly, only skimmed.

    It seems to be a jumble to me. In relation to the recent thread on the poor quality of scientific papers one has to ask how this paper got through peer review - just in terms of data presentation. The authors do not seem to have much clue about the diseases they are studying either. I could not work out what the interesting result was, to be honest.

    Thanks @Jonathan Edwards
    I have read it a wee bit more and it just gets more confusing the more you read. It has some of those broadbrush statements that red flag me and I was struggling with clarity regarding the data re the "jumble". I was a bit wary because even with my limited knowledge I can usually make more sense of what is going on within a paper and it's all over the show. I thought you might spot fast if it had some really good merits in there.
