Canadian Consensus case definition revisited

Friday 13 August 2010

YouTubeThe CFIDS Association of America reports in its August 2010 newsletter:

Canadian Case Definition Revisited

Writing in the American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Dr. Leonard Jason and colleagues recommend a new set of explicit rules for determining whether critical symptoms meet ME/CFS criteria using the 2003 Canadian Consensus Case Definition. The authors provide a structure that they propose will standardize assessment of subjects for clinical and research purposes.

The above originally appeared here.
