Where Exactly Does ME/CFS Research Stand In 2021? Dr. Komaroff Explains

By By Bronc and Eric Pyrrhus in Phoenix Rising.

From the central nervous system to Long COVID to energy impairment, Dr. Anthony Komaroff provides his perspective on over 30 years of scientific research into myalgic encephalomyelitis/ chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and post-acute viral illnesses.

Dr. Anthony Komaroff is really on a roll. For a sometimes reserved academic, he’s been speaking out more and more lately. What has he been talking about, and why now? Phoenix Rising spoke with the good doctor, and summarizes some of his recent publications and interviews here.

For those who may be unfamiliar with him, Dr. Komaroff is a distinguished Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Senior Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He has published over 230 research articles and two books.

He has been publishing research papers on ME/CFS since the late 1980s, and currently serves on the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s advisory body for research into ME/CFS.

“Since the resurgence of interest in ME/CFS 35 years ago, whole new technologies have become available that allow physicians and biomedical scientists to study human biology in ways that previously were not possible,” explained Dr. Komaroff in a recent commentary.
