    What I find interesting is the implication, in combination with the Hornig-Lipkin findings, that ME is best thought of as at least a two dimensional spectrum. Severity, and duration. When you study such a group then the chances of finding key biochemistry goes down until you realize that such stratification is necessary.

    I have only read the abstract of this one as its paywalled.
    Did they stratify by duration and/or severity? I know the last one from this group did.

    I have still not read the full study, I have been having a bad week and a half, and its not getting any easier. I hope to post something in due course.

    PS They looked at severity.

    Asked for the full text via Research Gate... hopefully they will be willing to share. :)
