Jonathan Richard Kerr, BSc, MBBCh, MD, PhD, FRCPath, is a British researcher who became interested in ME/CFS after studying the consequences of Parvovirus B19 infection and finding that some of those infected went on to develop CFS. He has worked for St. George’s University of London[1] and as an Associate professor in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at Universidad del Rosario, Bogotá, Colombia.[2] Having returned to the UK in 2018, he now is practicing at the Department of Microbiology, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.[3]

myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) - 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.

antibodies Antibody/immunoglobulin refers to any of a large number of specific proteins produced by B cells that act against an antigen in an immune response.
