Genes Highlight Inflammation and Mast Cells in Fibromyalgia

Jones KD, Gelbart T, Whisenant TC, et al. Genome-wide expression profiling in the peripheral blood of patients with fibromyalgia. Clinical and experimental rheumatology. 2016;34(2 Suppl 96):89-98.


It seems to me that a subgroup with only FM diagnoses may be actually having symptoms (not as yet disease) because there is a obvious break down where autoimmunity and autoinflammatory , th2, ect accure. it is very important to get this knowledge out, before break down and systemic infection accure.
