    Prof. Gottfries and Dr. Zachrisson have been working with ME/CFS for over 20 years. Prof. Blomberg is a well-renowned virologist, who entered the field during the XMRV debacle. Jonas Bergquist is a professor of analytical chemistry. He was coauthor of a paper that demonstrated proteomic anomalies in the cerebrospinal fluid of ME/CFS patients. We are so happy that they have joined forces! :thumbsup:

    im not that keen on the microbial antigens having cross reactive epitopes to self hypothesis and kicking this all off, but maybe. I am keen on their looking for autoantibodies though and specifically around mitochondria and looking at energy metabolites.
