There are mitochondrial antibodies?!

Not dead yet!

While routinely looking for Covid-19 and antibody tests for Covid-19, I came across AMA tests. Apparently there are 9 of these, and one of them leads to primary billiary cirrhosis of the liver. I had no idea that was even "a thing." And I found a bunch of companies out there making these antibodies for research labs. Plus it's often ordered with an antibody test that relates to muscle cells.

Unreal.

It seems like a natural question, has any connection been found with ME/CFS? Maybe I just wasn't aware and it's old news.

A few years back I made a list of every single kind of autoantibody I could find that was available to be commercially tested at the time. I think there were around 35 of them, including M2 for sure. I'd have to pull the results to see about the other. I don't *think* they were correlated with ME/CFS in particular, but I am not for sure on that one.

ETA Probably not: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmed.2020.00108/full

In conclusion, the impaired mitochondrial/metabolic dysfunction, observed in ME/CFS, cannot be explained by presence of circulating autoantibodies against the tested mitochondrial epitopes.
