Patient-friendly version of Edwards et al.'s assessment of ME/CFS research

ME/CFS patient and science blogger Simon McGrath has produced a patient-friendly version of a recent peer-reviewed editorial on the disease that appeared in the science journal Fatigue: Biomedicine, Health & Behavior.
The article, titled The biological challenge of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome: a solvable problem, became Fatigue’s most-read paper ever within a week of publication, with over 3700 views as of the publication of this article.
It was written by Emeritus Professor Jonathan Edwards of University College London, in conjunction with a group of ME/CFS patients and carers, all of whom have scientific backgrounds.
The paper is an overview of the most promising developments in biomedical research into ME/CFS, and calls on the wider biomedical research community to target the disease.
McGrath said, “The editorial is written for researchers and is quite technical, so we thought it would help to have a more readable version so that patients could follow what we’ve said, and maybe join in the discussion.”
