PRESS RELEASE Contact Person: Dr. Charles Lapp, Board Member AACFS Ph: +1 704-543-9692 E-Mail: cfids@charlotte.infi.net October 7, 2004 American Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (AACFS) Seventh International Conference on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Related Disorders October 8-10,2004
Madison, Wisconsin, USA Cosponsored by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Centre for Infectious Diseases. CDC researcher Dr. William Reeves, Chief of the CFS research program, reported that $US 9.1 billion of earnings and wages are lost anually in the US alone due to disability caused by CFS. CFS patients are more sick and have greater consequent disability than patients with chronic obstructive lung disease, cardiac disease, osteoarthritis and depression yet fewer than 16% of CFS sufferers in the general population are diagnosed and treated for CFS. A CDC collaborative study with Australian researchers found that the strongest predictor of the development of post-infectious (chronic) fatigue syndrome is the severity of the acute illness at onset. Psychological factors played no role in the development of CFS following infection. The CDC and NIH have proposed the formation of an international collaborative network cal1ed the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research Network (CRN) to foster collaborative, innovative and incisive research. Such a network will assist in the establishment of diagnosis and therapeutic interventions and bring help to the hundreds of thousands of CFS sufferers and their families world wide.
