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...

    Assessment of a multi-assay, serum-based biological diagnostic test for major depressive disorder: a Pilot and Replication Study
    G I Papakostas, R C Shelton, G Kinrys, M E Henry, B R Bakow, S H Lipkin, B Pi, L Thurmond and J A Bilello
