    A way to measure cytokine levels in vivo using essentially a biologically coated optical fibre guided into the brain via a stereotactically positioned guide cannula.

    Potentially of interest for real-time monitoring in ME if cytokines in the brain are relevant.

    The paper, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bbi.2018.04.011, available currently via sci-hub.tw.

    Edit: accuracy.

    certainly not volunteering for that procedure. who would want to run al the risks involved just to be told there is no real treatment anyway.
