Update report: Effects of desensitisation treatments and clinical ecology for multiple chemical sensitivity and related disorders
Record ID 32004000063
This study aims to assess the effects of desensitisation and clinical ecology in the management of multiple chemical sensitivity, idiopathic environmental intolerance and electromagnetic intolerance.
Authors' recommendations: The previous STEER review found insufficient evidence of effectiveness of desensitisation or clinical ecology for multiple chemical sensitivity and related disorders. In this update, we found no evidence published since the previous review of effectiveness of desensitisation, including provocation neutralisation, or other clinical ecology interventions, in the treatment of multiple chemical sensitivity, electromagnetic intolerance or idiopathic environmental intolerance.
