Phoenix Rising: January/February 2007 (PDF, 69KB)

Here is Cort Johnson’s introduction to the issue:

Welcome to the Jan/Feb Edition of Phoenix Rising.

In this edition we take a look at a complex but possibly very important mathematical model the CDC has developed in order to understand the problems with cortisol in CFS. This is the first time that I am aware of that anyone has gone to the trouble to develop a mathematical model involving a process found in CFS.  The CDC obviously thinks this is quite important.

We also look at a report from a different set of researchers that appears to verify the CDC’s model and the beginning of what should be a series of reports from the  second set of the very intriguing Seattle intensive twin studies. This series is starting off with a bang with evidence of reduced brain activity in CFS patients.

Be sure to check out Rich Von Konynenburg’s new additions to the website as well.
