    I found this an interesting paper. It's fairly simple as papers go (statistics fairly basic, no knowledge of biology required that I can recall).

    It lists the three different criteria in the Figures (I wasn't clear before now what was the difference between the ACR 2010 and ACRT 2010 modified criteria)

    This shows that different people are selected by different criteria

    That's interesting. Would be nice to have a larger sample for it. I wonder if anyone's ever done anything like this for CFS.
