Would anyone have updated information on the doctor Yvette Tache and the research she produced 1999 and the CRF release factor?  

Is she still active?  Thanks!

I do not see an information on her. I would contact the CVSA office at cvsaonline.org for a current list. 

Can I ask why the focus on the CRF factor? Maybe that will help us direct you in the right direction.

Dr. Tache wrote a paper on the CRF release factor in 1999 and produced more studies in 2006 and 2007 that I've found.

I read Kathleen Adams' post 'A moment in CVSA History' just yesterday after finding Dr. Tache's research several months back.  Her research into the CRF factor and ANS seemed to describe the stress-triggered episodes and CVS clearly. 

Adams' post describes a presentation Dr. Tache made to CVSA in 2006 and I wonder where her research went or evolved to.

Kathleen has not mentioned her in all the time I have known her.. (questioning face) Does it seem like I am Name dropping? I don't mean to. Kathleen and I have worked together for a few years. We talked on the phone yesterday. She's wonderful. 

2006 Was a big year for CVSA. There was a lot that happened then. Including the publishing of the Pediatric Guidelines. The research may have gone in a different direction. Just like the past three years that CVSA has been working on researching and developing the Clinical Treatment Guidelines for Adults with CVS. Another thing we are super excited about. They are due to start the review process beginning at the end of the month. The review process can take up to 6 months so we are hoping for the publications (there will be four) of them to start early next year. CVSA is paying for the development and research of the Guidelines and the open access publication (open access allows anyone to access them, and can cost upwards of $20,000). It has been 3 years in the process and a costly endeavor. We are very excited to be able to get it released. We know how many people it will affect. 

Right now, Dr. Levinthal is the one that goes into detail about both the CNS and ANS and the CVS involvement with those systems. He likes to joke (not that most people think it was funny) that CVS really is in our heads (because of the neurological component).. but since most people are accused of that type of thing, don't find it funny. I did.😉
