New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    Hi
    has anyone run across Dan Rossignol's work on folate receptor antibodies in autistic kids?

    Rossignol is a DAN! doc based in Melbourne, FLa.

    I can't find his paper just now...if it's a published paper. He presented at autism one this past week ,but that site is down right now.

    Will post when I find.
    Here's a link to his site. Unsee it there unless mistaken.

    Thanks

    I wasn't able to use either of the above links, but I did google "folate receptor antibodies."

    Regardless of the etiology of CFS, there is certainly a strong autoimmune component.

    When I had such a pronounced (beneficial) reaction to a "diluted speck" of methylfolate and mB12, I did wonder if it were working more as an inocculation - shifting the immune system - rather than direct replacement of deficient levels of these chemicals.

    I can see why Nancy Klimas is so interested in the immunology of CFS.
