Narrowed Small Blood Vessels Linked To Fatigue In ME/CFS

Veins

  The Scheibenbogen Effect With the studies pouring out, it’s getting hard to keep up with Carmen Scheibenbogen and friends in Germany. Scheibenbogen has co-authored no less than five papers on chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) in 2020. With Klaus Wirth coming on board, the autoantibody testing lab there, and Scheibenbogen and company in a publishing […]

Latest From Ron Davis: More Evidence Of “Something In The Blood”

Blood Cells

  By Simon McGrath in ME/CFS Research Review.   Dr Ron Davis recently revealed more evidence supporting the idea that there could be “something in the blood” that drives ME/CFS. He’s been on a tour of the US East Coast, winning over scientists and clinicians, one lecture hall at a time. Open Medicine Foundation has […]

Study Finds Differences In Energy Use By Immune Cells In ME/CFS

NIH

  From The National Institutes Of Health.   New findings published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation suggest that specific immune T cells from people with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) show disruptions in the way they produce energy. The research was supported by the National Institutes of Health. “This research gives us additional evidence […]

Poor Oxygen Extraction Is Contributing To Exercise Intolerance In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)

Research

    By Cort Johnson in Health Rising.   David Systrom, a Harvard pulmonologist, uses invasive CPET tests to find that oxygen extraction problems at the muscle level are common in ME/CFS.   Chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) has a reputation for falling through the cracks. Test after test is run to no avail.  From the […]

Researchers discover potential therapeutic approach to treat ME / CFS

Research Study

    By Carley Rosengreen in Griffith News.   Researchers have discovered the pharmacological drug, Naltrexone, significantly restored the function of faulty receptors associated with myalgic encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS).  Researchers from the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED), Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University led the research, which has been published in Frontiers in Immunology.  […]

Bold Plans For Two Big Biomedical Research Projects

Research

      By Simon McGrath in ME/CFS Research Review.   A new research team is hoping to boost UK biomedical research with a proposal for a very large genetic study and a major expansion of the UK ME/CFS biobank. The new ME/CFS Biomedical Partnership is headed up Professor Chris Ponting, and Dr Luis Nacul […]

East African Disease Informs Nath’s Search For The Cause Of ME/CFS

Research

    By Cort Johnson in Simmaron Research.   Could a disease found in the remote villages of East Africa end up being a model for chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)? Dr. Avindra Nath – the leader of the NIH Intramural study on ME/CFS –  thinks perhaps so. He’s not daunted by mysterious diseases and nor […]

Immunosignature Analysis Of ME/CFS

Research

  By O. P. Günther et al. in ProHealth.com.   A random-sequence peptide microarray can interrogate serum antibodies in a broad, unbiased fashion to generate disease-specific immunosignatures. This approach has been applied to cancer detection, diagnosis of infections, and interrogation of vaccine response. We hypothesized that there is an immunosignature specific to ME/CFS and that […]

Hornig: Two Immune Signatures In ME/CFS

Mady_Hornig[1]

    By Russell Logan in Shout About ME.   Researchers have identified distinct immune changes in patients diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, known medically as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS) or systemic exertion intolerance disease. The findings, by a team at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, could […]

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Recognized At Last

2466566500_f16974b1a3_o-440x440

By Rivka Solomon in The San Francisco Times After 30 years of neglect, the federal government promised late last month to bolster research on myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome — the equivalent of promising to help multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s, two other important neurological diseases with no known cause or cure. Thanks to years of prodding […]

NIH: Time For Real Scientists To Study ME/CFS

laboratory

  Story by Russell Logan in SHOUTABOUTME.   The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced several measures to boost research into ME/CFS, although full details of its proposal and funding allocations are yet to be released. Broadly, a multi-institute study at the NIH Clinical Center will begin, focusing on patients with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic […]
