    A study comparing the "neuroinflammatory signature" found in MS to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease patients and healthy controls was presented by Dr. Henrik Zetterberg, Univ. Gothenburg, Sweden and UCL, on Science Magazine's Nov 1, 2017 Webinar. (8-minute talk starts at 44:41 on video):

    The spinal fluid (CSF) study involved 235 patients and healthy controls.

    An aside, the "Immunology Panel" used in this study may be the same one or similar to that used by Dr. Bergquist on 25 ME/CFS patients as described at the recent OMF Symposium. If it's the same one it would be quite interesting to compare the ME/CFS results to this study's findings.
