International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    The epigenetic landscape of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome: deciphering complex phenotypes

    This is an editorial from 2 researchers from Toronto, De Vega and McGowan. It is behind a paywall and i did not check sci-hub for availability.

    I would be interested in this if any one has access.

    I can access it through college. It is a very short review quoting the paper a year or so ago looking at gene methylation in white blood cells. To be honest it says nothing new. I also think the introductory stuff is misleading. This is nothing to do with heritability or genetics or epigenetics in that sense but heritability is used as a justification for writing about it. I would not personally call this sort of work epigenetics. It is studying functional commitment of cells during maturation in terms of gene expression potential.

    *Can't find it yet on Sci Hub. I am not sure how you put in an order for something there. If something is not yet available, do Sci Hub make a note of it & someoen tries to retreive it?

    *Journal has made it difficult to copy & paste details by using screenshots rather than the text.

    *No details on PubMed apart from the title, authors' details & DOI.

    The DOI is 10.2217/epi-2017-0106
