    While the chapters in this book are a long way from solving the enigma that is CFS, they do represent important attempts to understand this complex and perplexing disease. 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.

    Thanks Ember - encouraging even if slow - but a long way from my early days 12 years ago when no-one seemed to know anything at all.

    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.
