Excellent. It was really sensible of Lipkin to do his study in a way which would leave behind some resources which could be of use to others.
As ever with CFS, there will be uncertainty over the criteria used, what sub-typing can be usefully done, and so on... but it looks like this was done with an awareness of these problems and attempting to address them as best they could.
I think it is something of a shame that these samples are finite given that the entry criteria appeared as thorough as could be hoped for (IMO) and as any we have (I have) seen to date.
I do hope of course that the applications (should any be received ) use the samples productively: as do we all I guess. Presumably, Lipkin and Hornig (?) will be using similar criteria and assessments when producing their samples for the NGS research.
I would hate to see any of these samples wasted on some half-brained study aimed at proving we don't have XXX and therefore must have some psychological problem.
