Notable studies[edit | edit source]

  • 2017 - The Role of IP-10 in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome[4]
This study found "compelling evidence" of the role of several cytokines/[]chemokine]]s in the physiological and cognitive pathology in a group of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, although these patients were selected using the Oxford criteria, which includes many patients with chronic fatigue not caused by ME/CFS.

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A controversial term, invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, that generally refers to a collection of symptoms as “fatigue”. There have been multiple attempts to come up with a set of diagnostic criteria to define this term, but few of those diagnostic criteria are currently in use. Previous attempts to define this term include the Fukuda criteria and the Oxford criteria. Some view the term as a useful diagnostic category for people with long-term fatigue of unexplained origin. Others view the term as a derogatory term borne out of animus towards patients. Some view the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, while others view myalgic encephalomyelitis as a distinct disease.

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.
