    MEA Summary Review: Cytokine signature associated with disease severity in ME/CFS | 18 August 2017

    There has been a lot of talk recently about a new research paper from Stanford University concerning cytokine signatures and disease severity.

    In this review, we hope to break down some of the main aspects of that study, question some of the science behind it, and explain a little more about what it means for the future of ME/CFS research.

    • Research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA (PNAS), 31 July, 2017
    • Study authors: Jose G. Montoya, Tyson H. Holmes, Jill N. Anderson, Holden T. Maecker, Yael Rosenberg-Hasson, Ian J. Valencia, Lily Chu, Jarred W. Younger, Cristina M. Tato, and Mark M. Davis
    • This summary review has been written by Charlotte (who has M.E. and holds a degree in biochemistry), who has been volunteering at the ME Association to help produce our recent series of lay reports on key research publications
    • The review is also available as a download that might help people with M.E. to absorb the information it contains
    More details here on the MEA website:

    Professor Montoya will be over in the UK in September to deliver a key presentation at the CMRC conference in Bristol:

    I hope he will repeat his wish that medicine offer an apology to patients. Nowhere is this more needed than in the UK.
