  1. L-tryptophan and eosinophilia-myalgia syndronme in New Mexico.

    Article - En anglais

    To elucidate the apparent association between L-tryptophan-containing products (LTCPs) and EMS a case-control study was done.

    The case definition was unexplained peripheral eosinophilia (2000/mul or more) and incapacitating myalgia.

    Cases were found through review of white blood cell counts from May 1 to Oct 31, 1989, in nine medical laboratories in New Mexico. 11 cases and 22 matched controls were interviewed for information on symptoms and other clinical findings, on the use of LTCPs and on potential confounding factors.
