A Chronic Fatigue Initiative team has published "Mitochondrial DNA variants correlate with symptoms in myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndome," which Erica Verillo summarizes at her blog: http://www.cfstreatmentguide.com/blog/mitochondrial-dna-and-mecfs-one-pathogen-many-responses

Below Erica's summary is researcher Maureen Hanson's summary of the research paper. I had read Dr. Hanson's summary earlier and had not understood all the points that Erica makes. Erica says:

What this means is that 1) ME/CFS is not genetic, 2) ME/CFS patients do not have pre-dispositions for getting the disease, and 3) there may be a single pathogen causing the disease.
In Erica's post you can find a link to the original paper and a link to information on the Chronic Fatigue Initiative.
