    Link between POTS, MCAS and CFS - Innate inflammation in response to an antigen..t-cell exhaustion's role?

    31:00 onwards Dr Grubb explains which autoantibodies are found in POTS and suggests they are driven firstly by the innate immune system, including mast cell mediators and other cytokines, which then triggers the adaptive immune system to make autoantibodies . He argues it can't be coincidence...

    Can’t or Won’t? Immunometabolic Constraints on Dopaminergic Drive. Treadway MT et al. Trends Cogn Sci. (2019)

    Interesting review of research on the impact of inflammation on the dopamine system as well as a theoretical model and computational method trying to connect it all. Could be a hypothesis as to why Abilify and dopaminergic agents have some partial efficacy in ME, even if it is temporary (so...
