    Looks like a fresh look is being taken at an old hypothesis, the hydrogen sulfide hypothesis. It was developed in 2007 by the mother of a pwME and - this bit I googled - it took off for a bit when Dr De MeirLeir took it up but then interest in it seems to have fizzled out.

    Now Dr Bindu Paul is taking another look using samples from the Solve ME registry (early results point to dysregulated H2S metabolism in ME). She's also getting some immortalised ME cell lines, from both mild and severe ME, from La Trobe (Paul Fisher) and is going to look at mitochondrial function, presumably in relation to H2S but not explicitly stated.

    Most of the video is about the background of the interviewees and an outline of the H2S hypothesis. There's only about a minute about the current project (starting about 31:00). And some questions and answers at the end.

    More on Marian Lemle's hypothesis (haven't read) here:
