    Hi, heapsreal.

    Thanks for the comments. I've got the deficiency of perforin secretion in the list as number 15, and I think that the low cytotoxicity of both the NK cells and the cytotoxic T cells is due to their low perforin, as Kevin Maher (who was in Nancy Klimas's group) reported a few years ago. I probably should spell that out. I've got viral reactivation in the list as number 9. It may be that more T cells are being produced to compensate for their poor function, as you suggest.

    Best regards,

    It all turns into a viscious circle i guess with perforin defiency comes interferon problems which then effects cd lymphocytes and nk cells. U can start to get lost when looking into the different immune dysfunctions.
    The bigger study to this has only just finished so will be interested to see their final results of dim and bright nk cells, i also was told that they are doing cytokine studies that havent been done before in cfs as well as a few other things that werent elaborated on. The role of this study i believe was to find a diagnostic test for cfs i hope they continue to look into ways of improving our immune system, maybe using the glutathione depletion model.
