    We have slightly different, problems, of course, and I have not heard of interferon-gamma being disrupted in CFS (I may have missed, but the ones I can think of off the top of my head are interferon-beta and I think alpha)... but I did read about IL-10 (in a lay article; found this while looking for the citation)... and I thought antivirals plus immune modulation was pertinent to us.

    It's going to be different for a different disease, but this overall strategy is of interest to us.

    It seems to make sense that something similar to this is going on in our bodies. It goes back to why do PWC's have all of the viruses and pathogens present all at one time as opposed to healthy controls?
