Abstract

Last century there was a short burst of interest in the tryptophan related disorders of pellagra and related abnormalities that are usually presented in infancy.1,2 Nutritional physiologists recognized that a severe human dietary deficiency of either tryptophan or the B group vitamins could result in central nervous system (CNS) sequelae such as ataxia, cognitive dysfunction and dysphoria, accompanied by skin hyperpigmentation.3,4 The current paper will focus on the emerging role of tryptophan in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM).

What Your Colleagues Say About International Journal of Tryptophan Research
My experience with Int J Tryptophan Research has been excellent. The editors and reviewers were most helpful and very "open" intellectually given we were proposing a novel and counter-intuitive hypothesis. The administrative staff have been patient, quick, helpful and friendly. I would and have recommended this group of journals to colleagues.
