    Full title: Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia symptoms are key components of deficit schizophrenia and are strongly associated with activated immune-inflammatory pathways

    I'd suggest that there is total conflation between chronic fatigue and 'chronic fatigue syndrome' here.

    Usual caveat about my limited knowledge and understanding.

    If they really wanted to confirm that activation of immune pathways were happening wouldn't it be prudent to, rather than clinical assessments, investigate the biologic underpinnings at the cellular level?

    I just don't see what value this type of research has to forwarding knowledge in any way.
