The objective of this study was to examine the presence of some co-infections in the blood of patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and compare to those of ME/CFS patients.
The objective of this study was to examine blood pressure circadian [24-hour daily] rhythm in subjects with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and appropriate normal and fatigued controls to correlate parameters of blood pressure regulation with perception of fatigue in an observational cohort study.
The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate an exercise program to improve maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max) in untrained patients with migraine without making their migraines worse.
Research shows that patients with CFS and other so-called functional somatic disorders have alterations in the intestinal microbial flora, and emerging studies have suggested that both pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria might influence mood-related symptoms and even behavior in animals and humans. In this pilot study, 39 CFS patients were randomized to receive either 24 billion colony forming units of Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota (LcS) or a placebo daily for two months.
