Scientists at the Royal King's College found that one of the causes of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) could be. Hyperactivity of the immune system.
According to a study published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology, today's syndrome itself and its factors are poorly understood. However, experts have long been informed that the disease does not only have a psychological basis because CFS symptoms often occur in patients with severe colds or viral infections.
Researchers found that it was possible to have this hyperreactivity-prone immune system. Scientists believe it the factor is genetically determined.
To reach this conclusion, researchers analyzed 55 volunteers with hepatitis C stimulating white blood cells to naturally produce and immunize cells in the interferon alpha cycle for 6 to 12 months. .
Most of the hepatitis C patients recovered fatigue during treatment, which reduced when injected. However, 6 months after the treatment was completed, 18 participants were more severe than before.
However, there was no difference in IL10 and IL6 protein levels between patients who did not result in anxiety and persistent fatigue if suspected 6 months after injection.
