    Genetic and Genomics Studies in ME

    I thought I'd start a thread to collect together the various genetic and genomics studies in ME. Please feel free to post any relevant genetics or genome studies.

    Poll: Mast cell and histamine degradation genotypes

    I know that there has been one poll on how frequently MCAS co-exists with CFS/ME. But I could imagine that some of the negative cases just are not perceived as MCAS when, in fact, the mast cells might still be dysregulated asymptomatically. This is why I would prefer to describe the condition...

    POLL: CC allele in rs9557195

    Considering the causal significance of herpes-viral infections, especially EBV, I'd be interested in the prevalence of the CC allele in CFS/ME patients (10.1111/bph.15395). This SNP determines the EBI 2 expression on lymphocytes and EBI 2 is a key pathogenic post-viral driver, though it...

    High rate of false positives and misinterpretation of SNPs characterize direct-to-consumer genetic testing

    From Nature, Genet Med. 2018 Mar 22. doi: 10.1038/gim.2018.38. [Epub ahead of print] False-positive results released by direct-to-consumer genetic tests highlight the importance of clinical confirmation testing for appropriate patient care. Full text here.
