Belfast-born doctor pushes ME research

Monday 22 June 2009

Dr Derek EnlanderThe Irish Medical Times has a profile of Irish-born, New York-based ME specialist, Dr Derek Enlander (pictured):

Dara Gantly talks to Dr Derek Enlander — a Belfast-born doctor who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of myalgic encepalomyelitis (ME) — also known as chronic fatigue syndrome — in his New York practice.

It was two decades ago, on a return visit to his native Belfast, that Dr Derek Enlander formed what was to become a lasting interest in myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Now often diagnosed under the name Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), ME is a potentially disabling and chronic illness, affecting the brain, muscles and immune system that can cause profound exhaustion, pain and mental confusion.

The article also has this interesting snippet:

Author of The CFS Handbook, Dr Enlander has recently been appointed editor of a new medical journal, Fatigue, which plans to start publishing early next year.
