New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    I thought I'd start a thread on this paper as I've been finding the Italian muscle research really interesting. Unfortunately more than with most papers, my lack of knowledge of biology has got in the way of understanding it all (so I probably won't be able to add much).

    This one is testing gene expression on muscle (usually blood is the tissue type used in CFS). Because of expected contaminsation from other tissues they did some sort of global expression testing.
