    Recently the Stanford Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Initiative began recruiting for the neuroendocrine study.

    Wonder why it's female only. I'd participate otherwise.

    Because men and women are differntly wired when it comes to the neuro-endocrine system.

    Dr Klimas' team has been very good at recruiting men for studies, especially comparative to Gulf War Illness. I bet they are still recruiting men with ME.

    And its a lot more expensive to get enough patients and controls to account for all of the differences and allow for the possibility of statistical significance between the gender-based subgroups.
