PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

It's too bad money is wasted on a false foundation: CFS patients severely ill for 15-20-25 years, were not diagnosed using the CDC's flawed Empirical Definition. (See Leonard Jason's studies) that deleted the serious neurological and immune deficits/abnormalities. (See Canadian Consensus Criteria.) Reeves, Emory and Abt at it again!

Competing interests

My competing interest is that i want NIH funding for REAL research, not claptrap.
