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.

    Thanks for posting Jemal.

    Yes this is big news! Quoting from the newsletter

    "Thanks to the continued support of friends like you we are able to create new collaborations with well
    respected University researchers such as Dr. Sanford Barsky, Chair of the Pathology Department at the
    University of Nevada. Dr. Barsky recently joined WPI as Director of Cancer Biology. His work will
    focus on the numerous cancers found in patients who suffer from chronic neuro-immune diseases
    ."

    and this has previously been kept quiet as well:

    "The month of August also brought a group of talented and experienced doctors and scientists to the
    University campus for our first translational medical research symposium. Our conference resulted in
    the creation of the WPI Clinical Advisory Board with Dr. Jamie Deckoff-Jones as its first Chair. In
    addition to returning to the practice of medicine, Dr. Deckoff-Jones is sharing her medical knowledge of
    neuro-immune disease with many others who are ill."
