Morten Group Oxford video details their research: the cause of PEM, mitochondria, leaky gut, L-form bacteria, Raman spectroscopy, etc

A new Morten Group Oxford video details the various angles they are taking on ME/CFS research.

The Morten Group are doing lots of interesting ME/CFS work:
  • Mechanisms behind PEM
  • Factors in the blood that influence mitochondrial function
  • Bacterial toxins
  • The role of microbes in the gut in ME/CFS
  • Intestinal hyperpermeability (leaky gut) in ME/CFS patients
  • L-form bacteria in the tissues of ME/CFS patients
  • Raman spectroscopy of the blood of ME/CFS patients
  • The possibility that in the brain, ATP may mainly be produced by the myelin sheath, not the mitochondria

The Morten Group were one of the four research organizations to find "something in the serum" of ME/CFS patients:
Dr Morten revealed how when examining mitochondrial function, they took blood plasma from ME/CFS patients and added it to healthy muscle cells, and this resulted in a startling effect on the cells ability to absorb oxygen. They are continuing with work in this area and hope to determine why the energetics of the cells are affected in this way.

The other researchers who found "something in the serum" are detailed in this thread.
