I do agree with you on your hypothesis, as a scientist and researcher based on what I know, the research and literature I've read, and my own disease I think viruses are not the root cause. Just wanted to tell you there are two upcoming antivirals in late stage clinical trials which when approved by FDA for their indications will be able to be used off-label by doctors for CFS treatment. They are an improvement on the current arsenal. CMX001 (Brincidofovir), Chimerix, Inc. Lipid conjugate version of powerful and broad spectrum antiviral cidofovir. Unlike cidofovir it can be taken orally, has very good bioavailablity, much higher intracellular concentrations, and far reduced renal toxicity (due to the fact that the conjugate is cleaved releasing active cidofovir drug only inside cells, thus cidofovir isn't flowing around in the blood stream where it can get to kidneys and cause damage) http://www.chimerix.com/therapeutic-programs/category/cmx001 Valomaciclovir (EPB-348), Epiphany Biosciences, Inc. Strong antiviral against many herpesviruses, looks like it might replace the much more toxic Valganciclovir for CFS treatment because it is effective against not only HSV, EBV, but also CMV and HHV-6. http://www.epiphanybio.com/ I believe these two drugs will be approved in 2015 or so and afterwards will be used off-label for CFS treatment.
