Professor Wessely and horses and zebras ...

BY Michael Maes and Frank Twisk:
"We are pleased that BMC has published our critique on the (bio)psychosocial model for ME/CFS put forward by Harvey and Wessely in an article in BMC last year.

Chronic fatigue syndrome:
identifying zebras amongst the horses.
Harvey SB, Wessely S. BMC Medicine 2009, 7:58. doi:10.1186/1741-7015-7-58.

In our commentary
Chronic fatigue syndrome:
Harvey and Wessely's (bio)psychosocial model versus a bio(psychosocial) model based on inflammatory and oxidative and nitrosative stress pathways.
Michael Maes N, Twisk FNM.
BMC Medicine 2010, 8:35. doi:10.1186/1741-7015-8-35. )

we substantiate why the Harvey and Wessely model for ME/CFS ('unexplained fatigue') ( is incoherent and invalid, and why the label biopsychosocial model is inappropriate."
