Study finds chronic fatigue clues in overactive immune response | Reuters

The researchers used a drug known as interferon alpha to create a model of the syndrome and found that patients whose immune response to treatment was hyperactive or exaggerated were more likely to then develop severe fatigue.

"For the first time, we have shown that people who are prone to develop a CFS-like illness have an overactive immune system, both before and during a challenge to the immune system," said Alice Russell of King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), who led the work.
