Thankyou , I read the first one, this makes sense! That’s interesting regarding the T cells as I read somewhere they found or theorised a link with the a particular T cell that is also responsible for asthma and psoriasis, both conditions which I suffer from. What is interesting is my asthma inexplicably became much worse 18 months ago, a year before the ME started, the psoriasis was managed with vitamin d and is kept under control with vitamin d tablets! Also interesting I had random chemical reactions one to SLS and the other to a earring prior to illness, I suspect that my ME. did not just start August 2019 with iraqibacter but that I’ve had something for a while and it just became way worse!
the second article I will read later as my brain is a bit fried today!
It’s the th 17 cell, I was referring too!
The tricky thing with the T-cell apoptosis is that it is blocked when:
- High EBV viral load due to excess nagalase causes antibody suppression.
- Viruses can inhibit attachment of the T-cell to the receptor.
