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.

    .The ME/CFS Symptom Checklist is the standard guide for clinicians and research scientists for the evaluation of patients. The survey is presented here as a service to Dr. Nancy Klimas, M.D. of the University of Miami and her team of researchers who will use the collected data in their research on ME/CFS. In some cases, she may decide to share the collected data with other ME/CFS research teams. Please be advised, however, that the collected data will not be used for any other purpose and will be held in the strictest confidence. In completing the survey, you will NOT receive an automatic diagnosis, nor will you receive any sort of evaluation of your symptoms. You will, however, be advancing scientific research on ME/CFS. At the end of the survey you will have the option of adding your email address or not. By doing so, you are authorizing a member of the research team to follow up with you on this survey or invite you to participate in another study, should they consider such action appropriate.

    Hope I am not breaking some rule by posting this here?! I believe Dr Klimas is a well respected Dr for our disease?

    Nancy Klimas is great! We don't have those kinds of rules here - Nice survey. I took it.
