Published Studies find that microbiome changes may be a signature for ME/CFS (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have found differences in the gut microbiomes of people with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) compared to healthy controls. Findings from two studies add to growing evidence that connects disruptions in the gut microbiome, the complete collection of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that live in our gastrointestinal system, to ME/CFS.
Published SARS-CoV-2 can trigger chronic fatigue syndrome, study finds (via sciencedaily.com)
Since the beginning of the pandemic, SARS-CoV-2 has been suspected of causing chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). A well-controlled study has now shown that, even after mild COVID-19, a subset of patients will develop symptoms which meet the diagnostic criteria for ME/CFS. Their findings also describe a second subset of post-COVID patients with similar symptoms. Differences in laboratory results between these groups may indicate differences in underlying mechanisms.
Published New research provides insight into Long COVID and ME (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have uncovered how post-viral fatigue syndromes, including Long COVID, become life-changing diseases and why patients suffer frequent relapses.
Published How herpesviruses awaken (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Dormant herpesviruses induce their reactivation via a previously unknown cellular mechanism mediated by a viral microRNA.
Published Researchers highlight COVID-19 neurological symptoms and need for rigorous studies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a new article, experts highlight what is currently known about the effects of SARS-CoV-2 on the brain, the importance of increased research into the underlying causes of Long COVID and possible ways to treat its symptoms.
Published COVID long-haulers may experience abnormal breathing patterns, chronic fatigue syndrome (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Many long-haul COVID-19 patients have chronic fatigue syndrome and other breathing issues months after their initial COVID-19 diagnosis, according to a new study.
Published Gulf war illness, chronic fatigue syndrome distinct illnesses, study suggests (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A brain imaging study of veterans with Gulf War illness (GWI) and patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) (sometimes called myalgic encephalomyelitis), has shown that the two illnesses produce distinctly different, abnormal patterns of brain activity after moderate exercise.
Published Many youth living with undiagnosed chronic fatigue syndrome (via sciencedaily.com)
Most youth living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) have not been diagnosed, according to a new prevalence study.
Published Veterans study suggest two sub-types of Gulf War illness (via sciencedaily.com)
Brain imaging of veterans with Gulf War illness show varying abnormalities after moderate exercise that can be categorized into two distinct groups -- an outcome that suggests a more complex illness that previously thought.
Published MS linked to variant of common herpes virus (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have developed a new method to separate between two different types of a common herpes virus (HHV-6) that has been linked to multiple sclerosis. By analyzing antibodies in the blood against the most divergent proteins of herpesvirus 6A and 6B, the researchers were able to show that MS-patients carry the herpesvirus 6A to a greater extent than healthy individuals.
Published How the immune system keeps the Epstein-Barr virus in check (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A protein called PD-1, which is found on immune cells called CD8+ T cells, plays a key role in controlling infection with the Epstein-Barr virus, according to a study published May 30 in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens by Christian Münz of the University of Zurich, and colleagues. The results from this study indicate that monitoring PD-1 signaling during future vaccination and immunotherapy studies may inform patient outcomes.
Published Assessment tool predicts chronic fatigue syndrome 6 months after mono (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
To assess risk factors for chronic fatigue syndrome after mononucleosis, researchers developed and validated a scale for rating the severity of mononucleosis. In a study with 126 college students, they found that participants with a higher mononucleosis severity score had over three times the risk of meeting two or more sets of diagnostic criteria for chronic fatigue syndrome after six months.
Published Perceptions of chronic fatigue syndrome in the emergency department (via sciencedaily.com)
Findings from a novel online questionnaire of people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) suggest the majority of these patients do not receive proper care, say researchers.
Published Insights from metabolites get us closer to a test for chronic fatigue syndrome (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A study has identified a constellation of metabolites related to myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Combining this data with data from an earlier microbiome study, the researchers now report they can predict whether or not someone has the disorder with a confidence of 84 percent.
Published Chronic fatigue syndrome possibly explained by lower levels of key thyroid hormones (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study reveals that chronic fatigue syndrome, a debilitating condition with unknown causes, can be explained by lower thyroid levels -- but may be distinct from thyroidal disease. This can be seen as a first step to finding a treatment for a common illness for which diagnosis is hard to come by.
Published Chronic fatigue syndrome, Gulf War illness as unique disorders, brain chemistry study shows (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers have found distinct molecular signatures in two brain disorders long thought to be psychological in origin -- chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and Gulf War Illness (GWI). In addition, the work supports a previous observation of two variants of GWI.
Published Chronic fatigue syndrome: Biomarkers linked to severity identified (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Investigators used high-throughput analysis to link inflammation to chronic fatigue syndrome, a difficult-to-diagnose disease with no known cure.
Published Guided self-help approach to graded exercise program is safe, may reduce fatigue for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A self-help approach to a graded exercise program, supervised by a specialist physiotherapist, is safe and may reduce fatigue for some people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), according to a new trial of 200 people.
Published Chronic fatigue syndrome linked to imbalanced microbiome (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Abnormal levels of specific gut bacteria are related to chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis, or ME/CFS, in patients with and without concurrent irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, scientists have discovered.
Published Biological evidence of 'atypical' chronic fatigue syndrome discovered by scientists (via sciencedaily.com)
For the first time, scientists report immune signatures differentiating two subgroups of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS): 'classical' and 'atypical.' This complex, debilitating disease is characterized by symptoms ranging from extreme fatigue after exertion to difficulty concentrating, headaches, and muscle pain.
