These papers were uploaded to the computer site from the packet handed out to participants at the AACFS conference October 10-12, 1998, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Cambridge, MA. If anyone wishes to change an abstract, replace it with the version that was presented, or refer readers to papers related to the abstract or the researcher's other work -- or if you have any comments to make about the website in general, feel free to contact me at: me-cfs@comcast.net. My intent is only to further the dissemination of new information about the disease Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
