VIDEO: Dr. Anthony Komaroff - CFS Research: Recent Progress and Challenges
Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff is the Steven P. Simcox/Patrick A. Clifford/James H. Higby Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Senior Physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and Editor-in-Chief of Harvard Health Publications. He was Director of the Division of General Medicine and Primary Care at Brigham and Women's Hospital for 15 years and is the Founding Editor of Journal Watch, a summary medical information newsletter for physicians published by the Massachusetts Medical Society/New England Journal of Medicine.
 
A practicing physician, Dr. Komaroff also teaches clinical medicine as well as clinical research methods. He has served as an advisory board member for the Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and for the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. He is the author of over 200 journal articles and book chapters and of one book. In recognition of his accomplishments, Dr. Komaroff has been elected as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Dr. Komaroff's knowledge of ME/CFS is extensive. He has published more than 80 papers on the physiological aspects of ME/CFS, including viral involvement, neurological impairment, cytokine secretion and many more.

In this presentation hosted by the Mass CFIDS/ME and FM Association last November, Dr. Komaroff summarizes what we have learned about ME/CFS over the last 25 years, and presents some recent research.

We can add Henderson TA's study using valacyclovir on previously diagnosed depression confused ME/CFS.

So both valgancyclovir and valacyclovir have been used.

While I have the highest level of regard for Dr Komaroff and his tireless efforts on behalf of the ME/CFS community, I felt let down by his list of treatments (about 48 min).

I do believe that CBT is a valid treatment that can help patients deal with the effects of the disease. As he points out, it is used in many illnesses to help patients cope. My home grown version was to buy an inexpensive guitar off Amazon and some instructional videos. It has been a benefit to me in several ways, and perhaps it has even restored some damage done on neural pathways. Anything that engages the mind and hands (needlepoint, puzzles, music) can have these benefits.

To hear Dr Komaroff say that graded exercise therapy is a valid treatment is where I am deeply disappointed. Post exertional malaise is what exacerbates symptoms for most patients. I have tried in every way possible, and this avenue is a disaster. I am under the care of a specialist in this field (a physiatrist) and it has frustrated his efforts as well. As a former marathon runner, there is nothing I would rather do than go back to those days. To my experience, saying GET is a valid treatment for ME/CFS is similar to saying that you can save money on your energy bill by turning up the thermostat slowly. If you use more energy(especially while symptomatic), even in small amounts, you will pay for it.
