New Research Links CFS to EBV and HHV-6

Posted Aug 23 2008 10:59pm

I just read some fascinating new research that proposes a strong connection between MS and CFS and links both illnesses to latent EBV and HHV-6 infections. It's so refreshing to see some solid scientific research after all the crap that's been published lately promoting graded exercise therapy for CFS! It looks like the new approach of treating CFS with anti-virals may be on target.

For more on the latest research into CFS and viruses, check out these summaries from the recent International Symposium on Viruses in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Postviral Fatigue, held in June in Baltimore:

Summary from Dr. Bell

Summary from CFIDS Association's Scientific Director Suzanne Vernon

(NOTE: Dr. Vernon's summary talks about the use of valganciclovir. This is the chemical name for the drug commonly known as Valcyte).

Lots of wonderful, in-depth research that will hopefully lead to more effective treatments for all of us!

To help support more CFS research, consider donating what you can to the CFIDS Association's Campaign to Accelerate CFS Research .
