Frequency of deviant immunological test values in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) patients

Of 11 immunological tests done on chronic fatigue syndrome patients
and on fatigued controls, 3 tests (protein A binding, Raji
cell, or C3 or C4 [deviant values in either complement
component were counted as positive]) with deviant results
discriminated best among the groups. Other tests, including
immunoglobulin G subclasses, complement component CH50,
interleukin-2, and anticardiolipin antibodies, did not
discriminate well among the groups.
