Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells or PBMCs are types of white blood cells with a round nuclei, including lymphocytes, macrophages and monocytes, but not granulocytes (polymorphonuclear leucocytes like neutophils, eosinophils and basophils).[1][2]

PBMCs are less dense than granulocytes, and less dense than red blood cells.[3]

Myalgic encephalomyelitis or M.E. has different diagnostic criteria to chronic fatigue syndrome; neurological symptoms are required but fatigue is an optional symptom.<ref name="ICP2011primer">{{Citation
