Biological ‘fingerprints’ of long COVID in blood could lead to diagnostic test, say Cambridge scientists

As the title suggests, it looks like Cambridge University researchers are honing in on using cytokines as a biological marker for diagnosing long-covid.

"A hyperactive immune response" is the same explanation noted down as the cause of my exertion intolerance by the Immunology NHS RFH fatigue clinic back in 2019. ME/CFS was also explained to me as being due to something likened to a "switch" that turns on and for some reason never switches off or never goes back to the baseline. I recently made a post about it alongside the diagram of the model the clinic used.
