A review of the definitional criteria for chronic fatigue syndrome.
Somebody kindly sent me this paper.
Unfortunately it was not that exciting in terms of critiques of the different definitions. It contained maybe one or two criticisms for each definition so better than nothing I suppose but it could have been much more in-depth. Few if any of the criticisms were from the authors themselves - they just quoted other criticisms (a lot of them were from papers by Lenny Jason).
It lists the different definitions which I suppose is good although it does it in a slightly confusing fashion and in particular figure 2 has a problem: the box on the top right applies to both versions.
Its like research for the sake of research, who is it for and what does it achieve................
What an absolute waste of time and money (not to mention hot air) - typical for that group I suppose.
