Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Critical Reviews and Clinical Advances presents the latest research and clinical findings of internationally recognized experts in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Edited by the organizer of the Second World Congress on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Related Disorders, this work focuses on the exciting research presented there.

Starting with a thorough review of new literature, the volume continues with scientific reports of research on these mysterious, devastating illnesses. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome dispels some of the mystery and offers new avenues for research and treatment, as well as specific treatment regimes to combat the chlamydia and rickettsiae infections that sometimes underlie CFS/ME.

  • links between CFS/ME and rheumatoid arthritis, Gulf War Illness, and fibromyalgia

  • the rhythms of fatigue and wellness caused by the disease
  • human herpes virus 6 infection in patients with CFS/ME
  • case reports on stress and hormones in CFS/ME patients
  • role of rickettsiae and chlamydiae in the psychopathology of chronic fatigue The innovative research in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Critical Reviews and Clinical Advances will keep your knowledge of these disorders current and up-to-date and enable you to offer your CFS/ME patients the best possible care.
