The post-infectious fatigue studies – those which follow healthy people as they come down with an infection and then develop ME/CFS – present the possibility of catching the disease in its tracks as it begins to wreak it’s havoc.

A clear “winner” in the biological-psychological battle to explain ME/CFS is emerging but an analysis of a recent set of studies also strikes a cautionary note: it demonstrates how poorly done biological studies can have the opposite effect.
