The principal aim of this research is to identify feasible biomarkers that can be used in effective diagnosis of CFS/ME. This research examines the status of lymphocytes in CFS/ME with a specific focus on their cellular function including apoptosis, protein secretion, receptor expression and gene expression. It is hypothesized that irregularities in these cellular processes contribute to the mechanism of CFS/ME and thus may form a suite of diagnostic markers for assessing CFS/ME patients.
