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 wonder if this implies that they will not be applying the new test to previously submitted samples as was expected/hoped earlier?

    Does anyone know if VIP is doing testing this month? Since there is no information on their website for ordering tests or giving pricing I wonder if they are even active right now? I'd like to get tested at this point ASAP. Even though I am in the WPI study, I think it may take months to hear results from that study...

    The have a 30 day backlog, so if you requested a test kit tomorrow yours should ship in a month, at which point they expect the serology test to be available, but I'd suggest calling to see if those timeframes are still accurate.

    I agree. It must have been a horrendous procedure to get that lab into the U of N system. It says something for the lab itself that it happened. Univ of Nevada must have looked VIP Dx over very closely before they decided to have them become a University lab. It's a great boost for VIP Dx -the little lab that no one had ever heard of - it legitimizes them NOW. And the WPI has their lab right next to them. It really speaks to the continuing commitment of the University system to WPI.
