Notable studies[edit | edit source]

  • 2015 - The Role of Cytokines in Muscle Fatigue in Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)[5]
This study found low levels of inflammation in some patients with ME/CFS. The study was partly funded by the ME Association
  • 2017 - The Role of IP-10 in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome[6]
This study found "compelling evidence" of the role of several cytokines/chemokines in the physiological and cognitive pathology in a group of patients with CFS.
  • 2017 - Vitamin D status in chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis: a cohort study from the North-West of England[7]
This study found that vitamin D deficiency was unreal to the fatigue experienced by patients with M.E./CFS in North West England, and that patients were more likely to take vitamin D supplements compared to healthy controls. Severely ill patients were not included in the study and patients were not involved in the study's design, implementation or interpretation of results.

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A fatigue-based illness. The term CFS was invented invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as an replacement for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Some view CFS as a neurological disease, others use the term for any unexplained long-term fatigue. Sometimes used as a the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, despite the different diagnostic criteria.

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.

myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
