    Avoiding pricks tends to be a good idea. Difficult when you have ME - or Lyme by the look of it. :lol:

    @duncan and @MeSci can you please help me locate where in this thread you/we started talking about Lyme in regards/connection to the Hornig and Lipkin CSF study and the rationale?

    I'm in a big crash and have to conserve the little energy I have for other daily living activities.

    Thanks

    Sure, NK17. Check over midway on page 12 I think. There wasn't much rational other than the flow just trended in that direction.

    There are lots of references to Lyme in the thread. You can find them using the standard PR search facility - just type in 'lyme' and select 'search this thread only'. This is the first mention I found that way.

    That doesn't sound subtle at all.

    "Our results indicate a markedly disturbed immune signature in the cerebrospinal fluid of cases that is consistent with immune activation in the central nervous system, and a shift toward an allergic or T helper type-2 pattern associated with autoimmunity." - Sexy.

    Wonder why it was published in Molecular Psychiatry rather than an Immunology journal.

    This allergic component was exciting to me as well when I read it. I will be interested in just what this is and it's affects and how they relate - it's been quite serious for me this last year and it's got to a level of feeling quite destructive.

    Yep! I read somewhere that there is a higher portion of allergies in ME-patients compared to controls, fits with me as i have a big allergy towards grass.

    Started with the usual allergies to grass pollen etc years ago and have graduated to more and different allergies--my cats, some foods.
    Although none of these are serious so far only mild to moderate.

    I get the impression though that allergies aren't all that uncommon in the general (and otherwise healthy) population.
    And although I do have allergies I have never considered them anything like a main symptom until recently they seem to be moving up the queue.

    TH2 ???
    who would this fit with the virus-theory causing CFS ME?

    virus and bacteria cause TH1+
    worms and allergies cause TH2+

    however, worms/allergies come along with bacteria/viruses as well.

    Please note:

    The posts starting at post 306 and ending with 319 were originally in the thread titled 'New Hornig/Lipkin paper in Molecular Psychiatry'. The posts were merged into this thread as they both are about the same study.

    Thank you.
    :)
