Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Newsletter CFIDS/ME

This independent newsletter seeks to serve the CFS community by
quickly disseminating information about current medical research on
CFS. It will be issued about once each month to give updates on
these developments. Other CFS topics of interest to the readership
will also be covered. Advice and contributions of news items are
welcome. Chronic fatigue syndrome is an illness characterized by
debilitating fatigue and a variety of flu-like symptoms. The
condition is also known as chronic fatigue immune deficiency syndrome
(CFIDS), myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and by other names, and in
the past has been known as chronic Epstein-Barr virus (CEBV).
