Cytokine-binding Proteins Under Development

"But the team warns about getting too excited at this very early stage. The technique has yet to be tested in animals, let alone humans."

Still, if ME still remains mysterious by the time this new technique gets properly developed, this might be another useful tool. ME researchers probably wish they had a selection of cytokine-binders available now.

Since this might also be useful for reducing deaths from viruses, it should get lots of funding.
