French Researchers Discover A New Component In Blood

Blood Cells

    By Iliriana Bisha Tagani MD in Gilmore Health News.   French researchers discovered the presence of complete and functional mitochondria in the bloodstream. Ultimately, this discovery may lead to better diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of many diseases, including some cancers.   Our blood consists of red and white blood cells and platelets bathed in […]

The Myhill Mitochondrial Test And ME/CFS Studies Take A Hit


By Cort Johnson in Health Rising.   The ATP Profiles test developed by Dr John McLaren-Howard (and the Mitochondrial Energy Score developed from it) has been a big deal for the chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) community. The test formed the basis for studies dating back to 2009 by Dr. Myhill, Dr. McLaren and Dr. Booth which asserted […]

Mitochondria Play An Unexpected Role In Killing Bacteria


  By Katarina Zimmer in The Scientist.   B.H. Abuaita et al., “Mitochondria-derived vesicles deliver antimicrobial reactive oxygen species to control phagosome-localized Staphylococcus aureus,” Cell Host Microbe, 24:625–36, 2018. According to biology textbooks, a macrophage engulfs a bacterium, internalizes it in a toxin-filled vesicle called a phagosome, then shuttles the cellular remains to a lysosome for degradation. […]

Are Fluoroquinolones Causing Connective Tissue Disorders That Are Leading To ME/CFS ?


    From Floxie Hope.   The symptoms of fluoroquinolone toxicity often mimic those of ME/CFS (Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome). Many people suffering from fluoroquinolone toxicity experience debilitating fatigue, and some are bed-bound and permanently disabled from this symptom, along with all the others that come along with fluoroquinolone toxicity. Both fluoroquinolone toxicity and ME/CFS […]

New Method Improves Delivery Of Healthy Mitochondria To Cells Where It Is Dysfunctional, Study Shows


  BY Patricia Inacio, PHD in Mitochondrial Disease News.   South Korean researchers have developed a simple way to deliver healthy mitochondria to cells where it is dysfunctional, rescuing the cells’ energy levels and metabolic function. The study, “Delivery of exogenous mitochondria via centrifugation enhances cellular metabolic function,” was published in the journal Scientific Reports. Defects in mitochondria, […]

Blood Cells In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Are Drained Of Energy

Blood Cells

  By Andy Coghlan in New Scientist. Thirteen years ago, Cara Tomas was rendered bedbound with chronic fatigue syndrome. It came on suddenly, she says, without warning signs. Even now she has good days and bad days due to the lingering effects of the disease. “A lot of people dismiss it as a psychological disease, which […]

The Little Known Nutrient That’s Growing My Daughter New Mitochondria | PQQ


    By Rebecca Ferguson in the Recovering Kids Blog.   Mitochondria. We all have them. We all need them. We need them especially in order to digest some of the biology textbook reminiscent explanations of what they do! But we’ve got even the most mito-challenged, fatigued among you covered with a two-minute, easy-to-follow video that explains […]

Deep Dive Into The Science On ME


    By Adrianne Tillman in Open Medicine Foundation.   Leading scientists presented their research on ME/CFS at the day-long Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS* at Stanford on Aug. 12. The researchers spoke at length about the complicated biological processes involved, their study results and the limitations of their conclusions presented thus far. The […]

Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Post-Exertional Malaise and ME/CFS


  An interesting read from the Massachusetts CFIDS/ME & FM Association.   Treatment   Living in the “energy envelope” Mitochondrial specialists advise conserving energy to minimize the two types of fatigue. 51 ME/CFS specialists advise acknowledging the finiteness of energy for each patient for each day. Some call this the “energy envelope.” 59, 60, 61Unfortunately, […]

Researchers Call For More In-Depth Mitochondrial Testing In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)


  By Cort Johnson in Health Rising. A letter to the editor of the BioMed Central Journal urged more in depth mitochondrial testing than has been done be done in ME/CFS. The letter referred to a study done by an ME/CFS researcher, Maureen Hanson, and funded by the Chronic Fatigue Initiative. The CFI is very […]
