    The authors are from the Shanghai University School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have only glanced at the abstract and conclusions. It appears that most of the studies seem to define CFS as fatigue, and are not carried out sufficiently well to provide scientific evidence. The authors basically concluded that if claims of efficacy are to be made for any form of TCM they need to use proper case definitions and higher quality clinical trials.
