Neuroinflammation in the Brain of Patients with ME / CFS
Brain Nerve. 2018 Jan;70(1):19-25. doi: 10.11477/mf.1416200945.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis / chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is characterized by chronic, profound, disabling, and unexplained fatigue; cognitive impairment; and chronic widespread pain. By using positron emission tomography, our study demonstrated neuroinflammation in the brain of patients with ME/CFS. Neuroinflammation was found to be widespread in the brain areas of the patients with ME/CFS and was associated with the severity of their neuropsychological symptoms. The ongoing research would lead to the establishment of objective diagnostic criteria and development of an appropriate therapy.
