@HTester -- Thanks for the info. I have a question. Ron has indicated that based on his nanoneedle experiments, ME/CFS patients' cells behave fine when in a healthy person's plasma, while both healthy patients' cells and CFS patients' cells "crap out," so to speak, when put into a CFS patient's plasma. That suggests that the problem is something (or a lack of something) in the plasma and the effect that this something (or lack of something) is having on cells, not necessarily a primary problem in the cells themselves. Is that inconsistent with your theory? It sounds like you're studying cells and not plasma.
