1. Increased serum IgA and IgM against LPS of enterobacteria in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS): Indication for the involvement of gram-negative enterobacteria in the etiology of CFS and for the presence of an increased gut-intestinal permeability.
Match Strength: 9.603
There is now evidence that chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is accompanied by immune disorders and by increased oxidative stress. The present study has been designed in order to examine the serum concentrations of IgA and IgM to LPS of gram-negative enterobacteria, i.e. Hafnia alvei; Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Morganella morganii, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas putida, Citrobacter koseri, and Klebsiella pneumoniae in CFS patients, patients with partial CFS and normal controls. We found that the prevalences and median values for serum IgA against the LPS of enterobacteria are significantly greater ... Read More »

2. Psychomotor speed: possibly a new marker for overtraining syndrome.
Match Strength: 9.322
Overtraining syndrome (OTS) is a major threat for performance and health in athletes. OTS is caused by high levels of (sport-specific) stress in combination with too little regeneration, which causes performance decrements, fatigue and possibly other symptoms. Although there is general consensus about the causes and consequences, many different terminologies have been used interchangeably. The consequences of overreaching and overtraining are divided into three categories: (i) functional overreaching (FO); (ii) non-functional overreaching (NFO); and (iii) OTS. In FO, performance decrements and ... Read More »

3. Management of patients presenting with Sjogren's syndrome.
Match Strength: 9.291
Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune exocrinopathy that predominantly affects salivary and lachrymal glands, leading to dry eyes and mouth. The most common clinical problems faced by the rheumatologist are those of dry eyes and mouth, parotid swelling, fatigue and extraglandular manifestations. The first stage in management is to make an accurate diagnosis based on the American/European consensus criteria. The most frequent differential diagnoses are dry eyes and mouth symptoms, a variant of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, and sialosis, which causes a non-inflammatory enlargement of ...

4. The influence of aerobic fitness and fibromyalgia on cardiorespiratory and perceptual responses to exercise in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Match Strength: 7.452
OBJECTIVE: To investigate cardiorespiratory and perceptual responses to exercise in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), accounting for comorbid fibromyalgia (FM) and controlling for aerobic fitness. METHODS: Twenty-nine patients with CFS only, 23 patients with CFS plus FM, and 32 controls completed an incremental bicycle test to exhaustion. Cardiorespiratory and perceptual responses were measured. Results were determined for the entire sample and for 18 subjects from each group matched for peak oxygen consumption. RESULTS: In the overall sample, there were no significant differences ... Read More »
