Screening NK-, B- and T-cell phenotype and function in patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

CFS individuals analyzed in this study show no differences in B-cell compartment, skewed NK cells and poorly responsive T cells.
The observed immunological defaults do not provide any causative link to the illness, but could explain some of the symptoms and in particular the poor control of viral infections reported in these individuals. Some of these biomarkers may be useful for the characterization of CFS. (But you have to distinguiesh between ME, CFS ,or both).
