    Cort Johnson's blog dated 31 March suggests a new Lipkin/Hornig paper is due to be published and may identify sub-sets :

    That's exciting. If there's one thing hanging around this blog teaches you it's that we're all the same but we're not, um, all the same.

    Lipkin's quote...

    ...could mean that there are patient subsets, each with a different disorder, or I suppose it could mean that ME/CFS is a "complex set of disorders" (with multiple things going wrong) in each patient.

    Either way, sounds like it could be exciting stuff.

    I read that on Cort's blog, but we really need to see the paper/s before deciding. There are more than one paper I think, and maybe three. It does however alert us to good things ahead, a kind of Christmas in July?
