CDC's ME/CFS Program
A Systematic Evidence Review of the Evidence
CDC has contracted with the Pacific Northwest Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) to conduct a systematic review of the scientific literature surrounding myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
The CDC CFS Patient-Centered Outreach and Communication Activity (PCOCA) has been changed to:
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Stakeholder Engagement and Communication (MECFS-SEC)
CDC has begun a multi-site clinical assessment of ME/CFS patients in clinical practices of clinicians with expertise in ME/CFS.
The final Wichita Clinical Study data can be accessed through CDC’s NCHS Research Data Center (RDC). The data was collected during a 2-day in-hospital study conducted from December 2002 to July 2003 in Wichita, KS, USA.
