    Compared to patients with multiple sclerosis, patients with CFS had greater numbers of CD16+/CD3– NK cells. Further study will be required to determine whether these alterations in lymphocyte subsets are directly involved in the pathophysiology of these disorders, or are secondary effects of the causal agent(s).



    Numbers of activated CD8+/CD38+ cells tended to be increased in patients with CFS compared to patients with MS, and numbers of CD8+/HLA-DR+ cells tended to be higher in patients with CFS than in healthy controls.
