A lot of effort has gone into discovering whether microRNAs are involved in human disease, and a large array of different miRNA molecules are now linked with different illnesses, including cancer, epilepsy, malarial infection and multiple sclerosis.

Dr Robert Petty and Dr Jonathan Kerr (Queen Mary University of London, and St George’s University of London & Universidad del Rosario, Colombia) have just published a paper in the journal PlosOne on the role of miRNAs in ME/CFS, from work undertaken during Dr Petty’s PhD project.
