Study Shows Red Blood Cells Less Deformable In ME Patients – Possible Biomarker

Blood Cells

Written by Ronald W. Davis, PhD in ME Action. This paper documents that red blood cells are less deformable in ME/CFS patients compared to healthy controls. It potentially could be a biomarker, and we are proceeding to design new devices that will make a clear distinction between patients and healthy controls. These devices will be […]
