Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Blood Test Sensitive to Immune Stress

10:00 EDT 30 Apr 2019 | Genetic Engineering News

Scientists at Stanford University and the University of California, Irvine, have developed a nanosensor-based test that can diagnose chronic fatigue syndrome (CSF) by measuring how immune system cells in plasma respond to stress. CSF, or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), is thought to affect more than 2 million people in the U.S., and millions more worldwide.
