CDC reassigns controversial head of chronic fatigue research

CDC reassigns controversial head of chronic fatigue research
February 5, 2010 --

The Atlanta-based CDC has reassigned its chief researcher into chronic fatigue syndrome, a longtime target of patient advocacy groups around the country. Outside researchers last fall reported a strong correlation between chronic fatigue syndrome and a retrovirus related to HIV. The CDC’s research, led by Dr. William C. Reeves, had no role in that study, and Reeves was dismissive of its findings.
