Cytokines across the night in chronic fatigue syndrome with and without Fibromyalgia - Source: Clinical and Vaccine Immunology, Feb 24, 2010

The symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome are consistent with cytokine dysregulation. [Cytokines are cell-to-cell 'signaling molecules' secreted by immune cells.] This has led to the hypothesis of immune dysregulation as the cause of this illness.

To further test this hypothesis, we did repeated blood sampling for cytokines while patients and matched healthy controls slept in the sleep lab.

Because no one method for assaying cytokines is acknowledged to be better than another, we assayed for protein in serum, message in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and function in resting and stimulated PBLs

• We found no evidence of pro-inflammatory cytokine upregulation.

• Instead, in line with some of our earlier studies, we did find some evidence to support a role for an increase in IL-10 (Interleukin-10), an anti-inflammatory cytokine.

Although the changes were small, they may contribute to the common complaint of CFS patients of disrupted sleep.
