Physiological post-exertional abnormalities in ME & CFS

Review article extracts: Abstract: Post-exertional “malaise” is a hallmark symptom of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Various abnormalities, including abnormal physiological responses to exertion, can account for post-exertional “malaise” and “exercise avoidance”. Since these abnormalities are not … Continue reading

Low NK cell activity differs in ME/CFS & MS

Research abstract: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients suffer from debilitating fatigue which is not alleviated by rest. In addition to the fatigue related symptoms suffered by CFS/ME and MS patients, dysfunction of the immune system … Continue reading

Low NK Cell activity in CFS and is related to severity

Review abstract: Background: Natural killer (NK) cells act as an immune surveillance against invading pathogens and tumors. NK cell cytotoxicity (NKCC) has been reported to be decreased in patients with CFS. Methods: The objective of this review was to conduct … Continue reading

Immune dysfunction differs in moderate and severe CFS/ME over time

Research abstract: Background: Research has identified immunological abnormalities in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME), a heterogeneous illness with an unknown cause and absence of diagnostic test. There have been no CFS/ME studies examining innate and adaptive immune cells longitudinally in … Continue reading

Dr Jacob Teitelbaum overview of research into CFS & ME

Numerous studies, including research on immunologic and hormonal changes, confirm that fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are painfully real illnesses. Though many insurance companies continue to deny that science so they can avoid paying healthcare and disability costs, this … Continue reading

Immune and inflammation related genes in CFS

Research abstract: Recent evidence suggests immune and inflammatory alterations are important in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). This study was done to explore the association of functionally important genetic variants in inflammation and immune pathways with CFS. Peripheral blood DNA was … Continue reading

Dysfunction found in innate and adaptive immune systems in CFS/ME

Research abstract: Background: Abnormal immune function is often an underlying component of illness pathophysiology and symptom presentation. Functional and phenotypic immune-related alterations may play a role in the obscure pathomechanism of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME). The objective of this … Continue reading
