Scientists from Stanford University have, for the first time, developed a test for Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
The blood test offers new evidence for the biological basis of ME, which has been controversial for many years.
“Too often, this disease is categorized as imaginary,” said Dr Ron Davis, professor of biochemistry and of genetics.
The test, which scientists say diagnoses ME with 100% accuracy, uses a nanoelectronic assay to test changes in electrical activity in immune cells in blood plasma.
