* Patient Activism and the Struggle for Diagnosis: Gulf War Illnesses and Other Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms in the US [including CFS, FM, and MCS]

Researcher Stephen Zavestoski stated, “We examine Gulf War illnesses — which include the fatigue, joint pain, dermatitis, headaches, memory loss, blurred vision, diarrhea, and other symptoms reported by Gulf War veterans —in relation to other medically unexplained physical symptoms such as multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Our intent is to examine the diagnosis negotiations involved in these mysterious diseases.”

* Enterovirus Related Metabolic Myopathy: A Postviral Fatigue Syndrome [Chronic Fatigue Syndrome News]

The objective of this study was to detect and characterize enterovirus RNA in skeletal muscle from patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and to compare efficiency of muscle energy metabolism in enterovirus positive and negative CFS patients.

RESEARCH SPOTLIGHT: CLA

Two studies published in the October Journal of Nutrition supported the benefits of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in human health. The first study, out of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, showed CLA’s mechanism of action for weight management while the second, out of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, showed CLA may help fight viral infection through immunoregulatory properties.

The North Carolina researchers conducted in vitro research to determine the isomer-specific mechanisms by which CLA reduces body fat and insulin sensitivity. The Virginia researchers conducted animal research to determine CLA’s effects on viral infection. To read more about these promising research studies, click on the link below:
