    Mice that do not have B cells (B cell knockout mice) with lifelong persistent coxsackievirus B (CVB) infection were injected with B cells from mice that are immune to CVB, and this resulted in either a transient or permanent disappearance of detectable CVB in the infected mice.

    The injected B cells resulted in a permanent elimination of the coxsackievirus B infection in a few of the mice.

    See the paper: The role of B lymphocytes in coxsackievirus B3 infection

    This paper is not new (published in 1999), but this info would seem pertinent for enterovirus-associated ME/CFS.

    It raises the obvious question of whether a similar technique could be used to eliminate, once and for all, the coxsackievirus B infections that are thought to be a major cause of ME/CFS.

    Interesting. Did you see the study on Dr Chia's website showing interferon B elimated chronic coxsackie in the heart in humans ? Anyone idea how this information ties in with that ?

    This is similar to the cure for HIV. It works for HIV, another immune cell pathogen (T cells in this case).

    Since I am CVB+ I am interested in this. Thanks Hip.

    This thread was closed for a short time to clean up all the off-topic posts on it.

    The thread was about -- "Chronic Coxsackievirus B Infection Eliminated by Transfer of B Cells From Immune Mice"

    Not about:


    Antibody tests measuring the level of the antibody response from the immune system?


    Not about:

    The relevance of chronic coxsackievirus b infection to ME/CFS and is Rituximab relevant?


    Not about:

    Testing viral levels in the blood by Dr. Chia.

    Not about:

    Retroviral infection of B cells in ME/CFS patients (DeFreitas) and the use of Rituximab
    .

    Not about:

    Gene Mutation, Vitamin D receptors, decreased RNaseL... .
