Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also called myalgic encephalomyelitis, is a complex disorder characterized by malaise, sleep problems, and pain. The cause of the condition is unclear and difficult to diagnose and treat.
A metabolomics study now reveals a characteristic chemical signature of the condition in the blood plasma of people with CFS. The work could lead to a diagnostic test for CFS and aid the understanding of its underlying biology and cause.
