    Another nail in the coffin for Wessely and White et al!

    A key conclusion to the study is that the standard of early management appears to be the most important determinant of severity. Having a mother with ME was an additional risk factor – a finding that is consistent with an illness causing mitochondrial dysfunction.

    Of particular importance is the fact that no evidence was found to indicate that conscientiousness, neurotic traits or personality traits are risk factors in the development of severe ME.
