We haven’t thought of Lipkin as a metabolomics researcher, but he’s now engaged in no less than three metabolomics projects with Oliver Fiehn of the University of California Davis:
a Simmaron Research Foundation cerebrospinal fluid project with Dan Peterson, a blood metabolomics study, and with the new research center, the first ever exercise metabolomics study.
If metabolism is indeed a key problem in ME/CFS, we can expect the already striking metabolic findings in ME/CFS to get considerably more striking as exercise and standing tests put ME/CFS patients metabolism to the test.
A metabolomics exercise study sounds like a very promising thing! It seems to me that exercise does something that knocks the stuffing out of my mitochondria. At least that's how I'm interpreting it rate now.
So, I am very interested in this study! I would think it would show some big alterations in the metabolomics, maybe some very significant ones.
