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.

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with the appearance of autoreactive T cells in the central
    nervous system. Using a mouse model of MS, Arima et al. now show that this attack begins at
    a specific spinal cord location. T cell entry into the CNS is regulated by a reflex neural circuit
    originating from leg muscle contractions.
