Dr Diane O'Leary is a researcher in bioethics at the Kennedy Institute for Ethics, Georgetown University, Washington DC, United States.[1]

Evidence-based medicine is driven by the effort to minimize medical risk. In the area of ME/CFS, however, it has long been routine for psychosomatic research to proceed as if medical risk can be ignored, as if it simply is not possible that patients with this poorly understood condition are suffering from a biomedical disease.

That oversight can no longer be maintained in credible debate and research.
