Jon D. Kaiser, MD, a Clinical Associate Instructor in the University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine[1], board member of International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis[2], and Medical Director and CEO of K-PAX Pharmaceuticals in Mill Valley[3]

Dr. Kaiser also lives with ME/CFS: "It took me five years to recover from it to the point where I was close to normally functional...If I work too hard, if some sort of stress occurs that I can't avoid, I can have a relapse that will last days to weeks," Kaiser said. "One of the things that got me interested in micronutrients and supplements early on was my use of them to help support my recovery."[3]

Dr. Kaiser has retired from private practice after treating patients with HIV, cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other immune system disorders for the past twenty-five years, in order to focus on research. He is currently working on the Synergy Trial, a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of a new treatment that would help improve the fatigue and decreased concentration symptoms for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). The treatment is a compound which combines a low dosage prescription stimulant medication, methylphenidate hydrochloride, with over-the-counter mitochondrial support nutrients.[4]
