Theoharis C. Theoharides, MS, MPhil, PhD, MD, is a Professor of Pharmacology and Internal Medicine and the Director of the Molecular Immunopharmacology and Drug Discovery Laboratory at Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, US. His lab, the Theoharis Theoharides Lab, at Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, investigates the mechanism of selective secretion of cytokines and other pro-inflammatory molecules from mast cells.[1]

Dr. Theoharides's special interests include mechanisms of inflammation, neuroimmunoendocrine disorders, mast cell activation disorders, autism, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

serum - The clear yellowish fluid that remains from blood plasma after clotting factors have been removed by clot formation. (Blood plasma is simply blood that has had its blood cells removed.)

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.
