ME International Consensus Criteria (ICC) News Bits

IACFS/ME Conference to Include Discussion of ICC

Dr. Bruce Carruthers, lead author of the new “Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: International Consensus Criteria” paper will speak about the ICC at the September 22-25 IACFS/ME Conference in Ottawa, according to a July 28 post from Kelly on the Co-Cure Listserv. ProHealth has further learned that Dr. Carruthers' presentation will be part of an expanded 90-minute general session titled "Case Definitions for Research and Practice," which will be chaired by IACFS/ME board member Dr. Kenneth Friedman. This high-profile session is now scheduled for 8:00 to 9:30 am, Saturday, Sep 24.

The diagnostic criteria session and the unique opportunity for networking on the subject will surely make history, so register to be there now, at the reduced 'early bird' rate through Monday, Aug 1.

Based on the Canadian Criteria

As Kelly points out, “There are currently multiple definitions for chronic fatigue syndrome ranging from the rarely used 1991 Oxford criteria to the 2003 Canadian Consensus Definition. The ME International Consensus Criteria, using the original clinical term of  myalgic encephalomyelitis ("A New Clinical entity?" Lancet 1956, 270(6926):789-790), was based on the 2003 Canadian Consensus Definition and is a continuing work in progress [bolding added] as is any scientific effort. Other continuing efforts are being made by other ME and CFS experts.”

ICC Work Had No Sponsors, Article to be Free-Access

Further, Help ME Circle editor Jan van Roijen shared this notice from the ICC co-editors on July 27:

Myalgic Encehalomyelitis: International Consensus Criteria (ICC)

We are pleased to announce that the International Consensus Criteria paper, which is presently in accepted preprint format online in the Journal of Internal Medicine, will be available free online when it is assigned an issue.

The initiative for and development of the ICC for ME was done outside any organization without any financial or other assistance or sponsorship.

We would like to thank all members of the international panel, representing 13 countries, for graciously volunteering their time and expertise without recompense and working together to bring the International Consensus Criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis to fruition.

We all hope the International Consensus Criteria will improve recognition of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, promote consistency in diagnosis internationally, and lead to appropriate treatment in a timely fashion.
