Abstract of WO2006082390

 

The invention relates to materials and methods for diagnosis and treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalitis.

 

A number of genes are identified which are expressed at abnormal levels in patients affected by CFS/ME as compared to normal healthy individuals.

 

These genes include those encoding defensinα1, haemoglobin γ, CXCR4, tubulin beta 1, serine/threonine kinase 17B, HLA DRss4 and prostaglandin D2 synthase.

 

The genes identified provide objective disease markers that may be used in diagnostic tests to support the diagnosis of CFS/ME or for monitoring the effectiveness of therapy.

 

They also provide a rational basis for classifying CFS/ME patients according to the biochemical lesion underlying their symptoms and enable provision of appropriate targeted therapies.
