    This article was from a few months ago, but I just saw it. It's about multiple sclerosis, but perhaps something useful can be gleaned from it.
    Original article: http://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMoa1608889

    Is anyone aware of any minocycline studies for ME/CFS?

    Fascinating research you've posted. No, I don't know of current studies, but I was on it for two years as a teenager and I've wondered if its effects contributed to the later development of my current illness.

    As an interesting side note, acne bacteria can infect the brain, and the infection generally goes unrecognized. Yet another "stealth" pathogen.
