SNPs in CFS/ME genes could lead to diagnostic test for CFS/ME subtypes

Research abstract Aims We have reported gene expression changes in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and the fact that such gene expression data can be used to identify subtypes of CFS/ME with distinct clinical phenotypes. Due to the … Continue reading
