“New Evidence is Reopening the Case” of Lyndonville Outbreak – WSJ Report & Video Featuring Dr. Bell

  [ 11 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • March 6, 2011

“For 20 years, a doctor in upstate New York has been trying to prove that an outbreak of the strange syndrome in his community was caused by a virus. Now new evidence is reopening the case,” begins a Wall Street Journal report published Saturday, March 5. The report includes: a video of that doctor (clinician/researcher David S Bell, MD) and some of his patients affected by the 1985 Lyndonville ME/CFS outbreak; an article on the outbreak & new evidence by the WSJ's ME/CFS reporter Amy Dockser Marcus ("The Puzzle of Chronic Fatigue"); and an accompanying article by DePaul University ME/CFS researcher Leonard Jason, PhD. See below.

1. VIDEO: “Rural NY Town Becomes Chronic Fatigue Laboratory,” featuring Dr. Bell & some of his patients.

2. "The Puzzle of Chronic Fatigue" - Amy Dockser Marcus reviews a 25-year history of dogged detective work featuring ME/CFS researcher David S Bell, MD, and the ‘kids’ he first treated as a pediatrician during “the Lyndonville Outbreak” of 1985. It leads up to yet-to-be-published testing of the Lyndonville patients and their families by molecular biologist Maureen Hanson at Cornell University – which reportedly found that “seven of the 10 most severe Lyndonville patients, seven of the 10 recovered patients, and four of the 20 people in the control group tested positive for MLV-like virus.” And of course it reflects the stunning new finding that spinal fluid analysis has provided definitive and separate biological 'fingerprints' for post-Lyme disease and CFS.

3. Dr. Jason's article, "An Illness That's hard to Live With - And Define" - As a professor and director of the Center for Community Research at DePaul University, Dr. Jason describes how his own bout with CFS beginning in 1990 prompted him to put a research team together, and his views on the need for less ambiguous diagnostic criteria.
