In this presentation, Dr. Leonard A. Jason of DePaul University explores current CFS and ME/CFS case definitions and whether they adequately identify patients who have this illness. He offers the argument that better case definitions might help identify more homogenous patient groups, which could facilitate the identification of biological markers for this illness. Dr. Jason has been engaged in several of the efforts to craft meaningful definitions for CFS. He will discuss the various CFS case definitions, how they impact research and care, and how the definitions might be improved to better serve researchers, clinicians, and patients.
