Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

A common theme in them all is CFS as a multisystem disease with the possibility of more than one cause and influenced by a variety of interacting factors. Further, they acknowledge the reality of CFS for persons with this disease and the importance of finding causes, treatments and ultimately a cure. As advanced biomedical research techniques are increasingly applied to the study of CFS, it is surely only a matter of time before biomarkers are identified, etiologies understood, and remedies devised.

    Notice the free downloads. And here's a "peek inside:"

    1. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Viral Infections - Frdric Morinet and Emmanuelle Corruble
    2. Gene Expression in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Ekua W. Brenu, Kevin J. Ashton, Gunn M. Atkinson, Donald R. Staines and Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik
    3. Integrated Analysis of Gene Expression and Genotype Variation Data for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Jungsoo Gim and Taesung Park
    4. Corticosteroid-Binding Globulin Gene Mutations and Chronic Fatigue/Pain Syndromes: An Overview of Current Evidence - C. S. Marathe and D. J. Torpy
    5. Small Heart as a Constitutive Factor Predisposing to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Kunihisa Miwa

    In the second chapter, Gene Expression in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome," the so-called CFS cohort confuses me:

    What is "the recently developed World Health Organisations International Classification of Diseases for CFS?"

    I didn't know about this website with free medical ebooks. Looks like a good resource. Thanks for posting.
