Research papers by Leonard Jason - a request for assistance

Discussion in 'Institute of Medicine (IOM) Government Contract' started by Bob, Jan 21, 2014.

    I'm after papers by Jason in which he has specifically done work separating cohorts: e.g. separating CF from CFS, or CFS from ME, or CFS without PEM from CFS with PEM.

    And also papers in which he specifically demonstrates that Fukuda selects patients with other disorders (e.g. psychiatric disorders, or idiopathic fatigue, etc.)

    Has anyone got the details to hand of any relevant papers, please?

    Thanku to anyone who can assist. :thumbsup:

    Ah, I've found one of the papers that i was seeking...

    King C, Jason LA (2004)
    Improving the diagnostic criteria and procedures for chronic fatigue syndrome
    Biological Psychology 68 (2005) 87–106 Files/king.jason04.pdf

    "Even Fukuda, one of the primary authors of the U.S. case
    definition, has stated that the current CFS diagnostic criteria might not exclude people who
    have purely psychosocial stress, or many psychiatric reasons for their fatigue (Fukuda,
    personal communication, August 30, 1995). As a result, individuals with purely psychiatric
    disorders and psychological explanations for their fatigue might be included within the CFS
    rubric. Although it is possible for some individuals with CFS to have psychiatric problems
    before or after the onset of CFS, or even both, the inclusion of individuals with purely
    psychiatric disorders may seriously complicate the interpretation of epidemiological and
    treatment studies (Jason et al., 1997)"

    "The symptoms included in the CFS case definition are also common to many
    other fatiguing medical illnesses and psychiatric conditions. For
    example, symptoms of fatigue, headache, unrefreshing sleep, muscle pain,
    and impaired memory and concentration frequently experienced by people
    with multiple sclerosis and major depression. Again, because of the
    degree of symptom overlap, it is very possible for a person with either
    MS or major depression to fulfill the symptomatic criteria of the current
    CFS case definition when only symptom occurrence is measured. Although
    many of the symptoms of CFS are common to many conditions, it is possible
    that the severity at which these symptoms are experienced by individuals
    with CFS is not. Use of symptom severity ratings with cutoff scores may
    therefore help to differentiate CFS from other illnesses with similar
