Abstract:

"Written by Roberto Patarca-Montero, one of the foremost researchers in the field of immunology, this book explains how therapeutic tools such as herbal medicine, vaccines, and cell therapy are being used in CFS research, as well as the connection between CFS and fibromyalgia, Gulf War syndrome, sick building syndrome, and multiple chemical sensitivity. Because of evidence that the body's "immune army" has been activated in at least a third of CFS patients, this book is crucial reading for all CFS patients and the health care professionals they trust."--Jacket.
